I just made a virtual machine with windows 7 64-bit on my windows 7 desktop that is connected by LAN.
I am trying to access the internet and after playing with the settings enough I am able to be connected to my internet but when I go to open a webpage like google then it says internet explorer cannot display webpage. If I could connect with either NAT or bridged I am not sure. Neither have worked for me despite what internet articles have said. I am not sure if the problem is with my host computer or my virtual computer. I can send you IP's if that will help.
