How to connect Virtual XP to Internet?

Running Windows 7 RC Build 7100. Absolutely no problems, everything is just fine.

I installed Virtual XP, it works fine, and I can access all my Windows 7 drives & data. But I can not connect Virtual XP to Internet. Virtual XP tells me "Network cabel is unplugged".

Image 1 shows which network controllers I have in Windows 7, image 2 what Virtual XP tells.

Any help? I would like to install some stuff in XP that needs to be activated over the Internet, thatīs why it is so important.

My own stupidity amuses me sometimes . I just had to change the network adapter from Virtual Xp > Tools > Settings.

Simple and easy, canīt understand why I didnīt notice it earlier. Please donīt tell my workmates and colleagues, theyīd have a lot of fun with this!
