From my limited understanding of networking this is expected behaviour:
You W* machine gets an IP address and gateway information from the router
In most cases (home use) the gateway is the router, (this is just
a guess!).
Gateway means: All traffic to me, I care about the rest (simplified view)

So, if your host is not connected to the should he find a
different machine? In the first glance, your host does not know that the
Virtual machine is on the same box. (And if the host is not connected, how
should the guest get a network address)

I have seen from your pics that your static network address was in a different
subnet as well - that will not work w/o routing.
Try as static address, may work
