Default Box: Ubuntu - VmWare: Win XP

Hiya

I finally thought why not moving completely to Ubuntu (while I only use Windows for things like a/v Skype, Photoshop and a few other things). The idea came I could setup VmWare on my Ubuntu Box and have a Win XP install there.

Well, said and done however I have problems with the network.

I'm using a wifi with a 128bit encryption (at least for the moment as I'm not in my home). My address is 192.168.1.39 and when I start the VmWare WinXP it gets assigned by DHCP 192.168.1.42.
Problem is that the inet connection in VmWare doesn't work. I can ping my Ubuntu box (192.168.1.39) but nothing else.

Any suggestions?
