    Hi. Is it possible to change the adapter in a way so that my Windows XP guest thinks that I am connected to the network through a wireless adapter rather than an wired adapter. I have a program that only works when I am connected through a wireless adapter and it'd be nice to be able to use it in parallels. Thanks!

    Hello dailo,

    I'm sorry, it is not possible to change the adapter in the way you wish, this is PD design limitation. Parallels does not connect Wi-Fi directly to virtual machine, otherways Parallels would have to take Wi-Fi connection away from Mac which would not be appreciated by the majority of our users...

    Best regards,
    Xenos

    Thanks for your input. I figured that would be the case. I guess I can just go buy a USB wireless adapter.
