VMware Workstation 16.1.2 Pro.Build 17966106
Router: AC86U(42643)
Host OS: Windows 10
Vmware image: Windows 10
There is an internet disconnection issue with that build. I have no idea the issue is from router or something else. There was no issue with previous builds.:mad:
Probably windows or vmware issue. Does anybody have a same problem?

VMWARE modes(previous builds)
NAT mode: works fine
Bridge mode: works fine

VMWARE modes(Build 17966106, latest build)
NAT mode: both a host and a guest(image) internet connections are disconnected until fixing it with Windows troubleshooting or rebooting the PC. Then it's repeated again and again.:eek: I can't even access my router.
Bridge mode: works fine.
