    I've successfully installed Windows 7 in Parallels, however, the Windows internet (IE8) is painfully slow (I'm on Fibre connection/home Wifi connected to the mac). It occasionally connects to google but any link thereafter displays 'unable to display website' error message (see enclosed photos).

    The virtual drive network setting is on 'shared network'. Would greatly appreciate suggestions for optimizing the internet connection.

    Hi AdrianR1,
    This Knowledgebase article is about the different types of networking modes that can be used for: Networking in Parallels. The explanations are important to know.
    The following Knowledgebase article is on how to set up: Bridge Networking hopefully should fix your issue. I had you reinstall Parallels Tool already because in most cases that is the cause.
