    I installed Parallels Desktop 3.0 for my MacBook Pro. All seemed fine, but I can't connect to the internet. I tried the recommended troubleshooting steps, but they didn't work. After a little digging, it seems that the "ethernet controller" is missing. Given that I can't connect to the internet, I'm not sure how to get this going.

    Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Hello, Jay!

    Please reinstall Parallels Tools [via Actions menu], shut down Windows properly, restart the
    Mac. After that please do the following:
    1. Go to System Preferences-Sharing-Internet and turn off Apple Internet
    2. Please set Parallels Network Adapter to Shared networking;
    3. In Windows please open Network Connections, right-click LAN icon,
    find Local Area Connection properties, select Internet Protocol TCP/IP
    properties, open General Tab and select Obtain IP and DNS server
    addresses automatically checkboxes,
