    I had Parallels up and running while using the ethernet cable at my hotel room. Once i hooked my airport express so that i can move around i could not access the internet. I tryed to solve it myself but could not find a way, i also searched the parallels forum but could not find anything. Does anyone know how to solve this?

    I have the latest build 30?? something.

    Thanks.

    Just a guess - are you using shared networking mode in your VM config?

    Hmm, well I believe default adapter is supposed to pick whichever adapter OS X is currently using. There's quite a few variables in this though. I am assuming your airport express is doing DHCP and NAT (i.e. it is not running a a bridge).

    When you switch from wired to wireless you sometimes have to wait as much as 60 seconds for your windows VM to get it. If that doesn't work, then in windows renew your lease.

    Or, you can try switching to shared networking mode. Here's a link for this. http://www.parallels.com/products/desktop/faq/5/
