    Hello, I have the following Networks setup in my Windows 10 Virtual, and I'm trying to prioritize their order of use:
    • Devices -> Network -> "Shared Network": This uses the Host MacOS's WiFI connection.
    • Devices -> USB -> USB 10/100 LAN: This uses the USB dongle network adapter I have plugged in.
    • (Note: Inside the Mac network settings, I inactivated the USB 10/100 dongle, so only the virtual uses it)

    The problem I'm having is that most every time my Windows 10 Virtual tries to find a path, it is defaulting to the MacOS Shared Network versus the USB 10/100 LAN dongle. I'd like to prioritize it so that it tries to use the USB 10/100 dongle first. But when I go to "Network Connections -> Advanced -> Provider Order", neither of the adapters show up there. It basically says "failed to get network providers" within the window instead of a list of the different connections. There is no "Adapters and Bindings" tab within the virtual, which I'm guessing Parallels removes somehow.

    Is there anyway to set priorities between the MacOS network and a mapped USB hardwired dongle?

    I think I figured it out... Need to mess with "Set-NetIPInterface" settings in Windows 10 instead...
