    Access internet on virtual PC and normal PC at same time

    Hi everyone,
    Iím running a Windows 7 PC but also use a Virtual XP PC for software that isnít compatible with Windows 7.
    Iíd like them both to be able to access the internet as sometimes I use programs on both at the same time.
    The problem is I have only one internet connection.
    Is there a way around this?
    Thanks

    You can connect both a virtual PC and your normal PC to the same internet connection by using Shared Networking, which lets both the virtual PC and your ordinary PC share the same IP address.

    To set up Shared Networking, first start the Virtual PC.
    Then click on Virtual PC and click on Virtual PC, find the virtual machine and click on 'Settings'.
    Go to 'Networking' and then click on 'Enable Networking', select 'Shared Networking' and hit OK.
    Next click on Start UP.
    Within the virtual machine open your browser. If a New Connection Wizard box doesn't open go to Tools > Internet Options > Connections > Setup.
    Click on 'Next' and then 'Connect to the Internet'.
    Choose 'Set up my connection manually' and hit 'Next'.
    Select 'Connect using a broadband connection that is always on' and hit 'Next' then 'Finish'.

    Hope this helps
