Hi Raymundo, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Just checking I understood you correctly: When you go to XP Mode's settings, the NIC's of your host are not visible, like in the attached screenshot my Realtek and Intel WiFi Link?

Hi kari thanks for replying:

you're right , I only can see the "not conected", "internally conected" and "Shared networking(NAT)" options, I read something about check and uncheck the "Virtual PC Network driver" into phisical network adapter properties, I did that , restart machine but nothing happens

Tks again
