I have been having a lot of trouble trying to access the internet on the Windows XP Pro side of Parallels on my MacBook. I have posted my problem on the Apple and Parallels forums with little luck. One fellow sent me an email on how to configure Aiport to access the internet y assigning a fixed IP address. After following his instruction and still not being able to get online I contacted him by phone. He is an IT specialist very well versed in both Windows and Macs. We spent over two hours trying to configure Paralles to allow wireless internet access, but with no success. I tried setting up a fixed IP address but that did not work. The Win XP side seems fine and it says I am connected to the intenet at 100 mbps but Internet Explorer or Firefox cannot connect. This fellow said that my problem is that when I go under System Preferences > Network (on the Mac side) and choose Location: Automatic, Show: Network Port Configuration I do not have the option to check Parallels Host-Guest Adapter. I tried manually ceating the Parallels Host-Guest file but it did not work. I uninstalled and reinstalled Parallels and installed the Parallels tool. I also reinstalled the Parallels Beta update and its Tools and nothing seems to work. It would seem that the Paralles Host-Guest Adapter is not getting installed when I install Parallels. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me with this since I Windows XP (and thus Parallels) is somewhat useless for me without internet access and I feel I have tried everything I can (with much outside help) do get this to work Any suggestions would be welcomed. Thank you.
