I tried Win 7 on Virtual PC 2007, if that's what your talking about. The only things that didn't work were my CD/DVD drive and my audio was totally gone.

If everything else works using that app, then try resetting your modem. I was able to make a connection and get on the net with no problem.

Which card did you emulate?

I have used and am using VirtualBox OOB on W7, and I beta tested VMWare 6.5 on Win7 as well. Both work.

OMG - I should *so* have thought about that.

I was testing FC 2 back in the day on WIn XP, and assigned my second NIC to be used by the VM - all of a sudden a reinstall of FC and the NIC was not detected - it took me a bit of some serious troubleshooting to figure out that it was the NIC.

My apologies for not remembering my own experiences and mentioning them here....
