    My MacBook Pro has completely lost the ability to connect to the internet - built in ethernet doesn't even show a connection and the Parallels virtual network extensions seem to have taken over completely..I am a mac technician but I can't so far work out what to do -Any help appreciated!

    yes first close parallels and get the mac connected

    what are you connecting to?

    I use wired ethernet via a router
    and got in all sorts of messes by making my own settings

    my network settings

    Ethernet Port
    Network status

    Built in ethernet (DHCP here TCP/IP)

    configure automatically

    Parallels NAT
    configure automatically

    my mac works as a virtual router in this set up

    I just deleted all my old settings and used the plug and play approach after rebooting the mac

    I also deleted all my hand entered locations
