Windows 7: Problem connecting to the internet using Windows XP Mode...

Windows 7 64 bit
Problem connecting to the internet using Windows XP Mode...

I'm using windows 7 64 bit Pro and I recently installed the Acrylic DNS Server Proxy program in order to maintain connectivity with my Mede8er media player when it is on the network. This required me to change the setting on the IP version 4 tab on my Win 7 network adapter from "obtaining the DNS server address automatically" to using

I can connect to the internet with no trouble on the Win 7 side but now when I launch Windows XP Mode in the Windows Virtual PC none of my browsers there will connect to the internet. My Dreamweaver program still accesses the internet on that side but nothing else will.

What settings do I need to change on the Virtual PC side so that I have connectivity again? Should I install Acrylic on that side as well?

Any suggestions?

Well fortunately, I was able to figure it out. All I needed to do was install Acrylic on the Virtual XP machine. Works fine now.
