    Are you connecting directly from a PC to the internet?
    No (home) router on the way?

    I have Arris M550 Cable Modem connected via LAN to my physical network card. IP/TCP settings I get from my provider dynamically. I want to use auto-bridging connection (vmnet0) for Internet access. Can I get Internet access for physical and virtual network card simultaneously ?

    Yes, what OS do you use?

    I would really recommend replacing this setup with cable router, and give the ISP MAC of the router

    WAY more safe & flexible setup
