Shared networking OK, but Bridged has died...

    Bridged networking suddenly stopped working for my WinXP virtual machine. Status has gone to "Limited or No Connectivity," the network is unavailable, etc.

    Shared mode works fine, but I liked having the VM appear as a separate device on the network. Is this discussed/solved anywhere? No luck yet after looking long.

    Wired Ethernet and Airport are both active, both connected on the Mac side. In the Mac System Prefs, Host-Guest and Parallels NAT network ports look the same in either mode. Parallels is configured to go with the default network connection (Ethernet).

    Parallels Desktop Build 3214
    Mac OS X 10.4.10
    MacBook Pro 2.33GHz/3GB

    Are Parallels Tools Installed?
    Disable your airport on the Mac side... If you still have Mac connectivity, check the settings for your VM to the network.
