Does anyone have a solution for this? I'm new to this proxmox, I just installed proxmox and can't access the internet. And i'm using VMWare for install Proxmox.

You have an IP address of but you told Proxmox that the gateway (= the 1st router) is at which is already in a different network.

You would need to set the gateway to an IP address which would be in the same subnet as your Proxmox (e.g.
It's likely you forgot to choose an IP address within your local subnet (see reply above), and used the installer default that does not work in your subnet.
Easiest way to is reinstall and enter a static IP address (not in the DHCP range). It is also possible to change the IP address of your Proxmox server (in several places).
Additionally, make sure VMWare routes IP traffic correctly for your VM that runs Proxmox.
