    I setup a new Win XP SP2 install at home last night using wireless on my MBP. Went to work and XP wouldn't get an IP from the DHCP server. I could enter a static IP and that works. Is this a known issue?

    Know Issue

    I had the same problem. If you switch between ethernet and Airport on your Mac, Parallels doesn't automatically adjust itself.

    You need to shut down the guest os. Then configure the guest VM and go to networking. Select the other adapter (en0 vs en1). Save and restart guest os.

    It's a pain if you keep switching. Someone posted earlier today for a feature to have Parallels auto detect such a switch.

    I tried that and I couldn't get it to obtain and IP address. A static IP worked though. Hopefully Beta 3 fixes this.
