Windows 7: No Connection in Windows XP Mode

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit SP1
 
 
No Connection in Windows XP Mode

Hello

There seems to be a problem with Windows XP Mode. I can't get it to connect to the Internet. I've tried it Full Screen with Integration enabled, with Intergration disabled, went to Tools and tried changing it's connection, but I still can't connect to the Internet via XP Mode.

I don't know if this will help but this started happening when I installed XP Mode for the third time. And right now I've installed XP mode for the sixth or seventh time.

Thanks!

Have you made sure that the xp session is shut down and not hibernated?
Then you can go to virtual pc and make sure that the network adapter(s) are
setup.

I am guessing that you have more than one ethernet card or adapter?

Also, are you connected to a router that is in DHCP mode?

In xp mode can you look at the adapter to see if it is setup for dhcp so that it
picks up an IP directly from your host machine?

have you also looked at vpc and checked the settings on your xp session?

You might want to look at the help for networking on virtual pc.
