Stacey M Hi, The setup here is a MacBook Pro 2.16 Ghz, 2 Gig Ram. OS X 10.4.6. Have Parallels beta 4 and a VM with WinXP as the GuestOS. If I connect to an open wireless network that does not require WPA Authentication, the VM with WinXp is able to get an IP address via DHCP and also gets the DNS server address and everything works fine. The fun begins when I try to connect to a wireless network that has a WPA password but does not require a MAC address to be registered It's in a restaurant where customers enter in the WPA password off a signboard. In that setup, MacOS has networking normally working but the VM is unable to get an ip address via DHCP. It doesn't get a DNS server address either. What's weirder is that if I enter a static IP address and the address of the DNC server, I still have the same problem - no networking. In fact I am unable to even ping back the MacOS host under which the VM is running. This is driving me bonkers. Some of you experts, please help! I need to get this working for work and really don't want to use a PC Thanks in advance!
