RHEL 7, CENTOS 7 in VMware no network adapter

After installing CentOS 7 in ESXi or VMWare Workstation there are no network adapters available.

The new kernel does not support vmxnet3 adapters.
To solve this either change network adapter type to e1000 or add this line to the vmx file

ethernet0.virtualDev = “e1000”

after the VM has been powered off and the guest OS halted.

Restart the VM and the network adapter should be visible.
