Here is a simple way to connect with your WIFI -

  1. Click on Edit from the menu section
  2. Virtual Network Editor
  3. Change Settings
  4. Add Network
  5. Select a network name
  6. Select Bridged option in VMnet Information -> Bridge to : Automatic
  7. Apply

That's it. You might be asked the connected password. Add it and you would be able to connect to the network.

P.S. - I will like to add screenshots of each step to simplify but currently I can't since I am new member. Hope it helps.

Kind Regards,
