Hi, I have spent many hours now trying to get on the internet from Parallels. I read several threads on this forum, searched Google, and poked around my computer as described below, but to no avail. I am using a MacBook with an Intel processor and OS 10.5.8. I am running Windows XP version 2002 via Parallels 5. A list of things I have tried: 1. Open Internet Explorer, receive message saying "web page is not available offline; to view click Connect," click Connect, see popup labeled "Dial-up Connection" which is of no use whatever. 2. Go to Virtual Machine --> Configure --> Hardware --> Network Adapter 1. All buttons are greyed out. Preselected options are as follows: "Connected," "Shared Networking," and an unchecked box for "Send host's MAC address to DHCP server." 3. Go to Preferences --> Network. Options here are not greyed out which is refreshing. "Shared networking" and "Enable DHCP Server" are already selected. Click "Show in System Preferences" and leave the rest alone. 4. Reinstall Parallels Tools. Then go to to Virtual Machine --> Stop and repeat 1-3 above. 5. Open System Preferences --> Network in Mac OS X. First item in the list on the left is Airport (green light, "Connected"). Next item is Parallels Shared Networking Adapter #0 (also green light, "Connected"). Click the latter. "Configure" is set to "Manually," change this to "Using DHCP" and click Apply. 6. Open System Preferences --> Sharing in Mac OS X. Turn on Internet Sharing. Select "Connection from: Parallels Shared Network Adapter #0". Check "Airport." After every one of the above efforts I tried opening IE in Windows to no avail. Finally I figured I should really ask you guys.
