My Mac is on OS 10.1.5 and VPC is v5.0 setup with 256mb of ram.

The network settings that I'm using:

Preferences|Virtual Switch is set to 'default'

Under Edit|Settings...|Networking|Virtual Switch I have 'Enable 
networking' checked with 'Virtual Switch' selected.

Also, my mac is using wired ethernet on a multicast-enable connection.
