Hi

The settings is as posted above by Steve.

You should know that the XP mode, as well as other virtual PCs, emulates Intel wire connection regardless of what the actual network card on the Host PC is.

I.e., you have first to choose the Wireless connection that you want to use on the Host. The virtual PC will not give you a Wireless icon with a choice of connections. It just will use as a connection whatever the Host is connected to.
