Windows 7: Assigning NIC in Virtual XP

Assigning NIC in Virtual XP

OK, my problem is simple yet, I do not use virtual xp at all so I am kinda lost here. I have a customer that wants to run his IP based printer from this VM using a software that is not Windows 7 supported. The software loaded perfectly. I just need to get a NIC to work so I can ping the printer at a static IP. I see a (Generic) Intel NIC in the Network Connections window on the VM, I can even ping the card when I set it up as static. But I cannot ping the IP printer from the VM. They are connected with a crossover cable and all works perfectly from 7 (i.e. pinging the printer) but on the VM I get timeouts. There are 2 NIC's on the physical 7 OS and both are functioning perfectly.

My question is 1st- Why do I not see a physical card on the VM?

2nd- What do I have to do to get one of the two cards to talk to my IP printer from the VM?

I am very appreciative for any help!

Make sure you are using bridged mode rather than host only networking within the setup of the virtual machine.
