    Hi everyone.
    I am using Mavericks on my mac, i have wifi connection on my home and other places, but in my school is not possible to configure Mavericks to get wifi connection, but already exist a windows configuration to get wifi connection.

    Is possible to run windows on parallels program and get wifi connection?
    Mavericks will be running at the same time and will not have wifi connection.

    Typically the network connection is bridged through the host OS. A VM OS won't have direct hardware access (needed for it to get its own network connection).

    In short, if OS X can't get a network connection your guest OS won't.
