    Hi all,

    I've been struggling for ages with this and it's driving me nuts!

    Ok I have a wireless router connecting my laptop to the internet. My laptop
    is running VPC 2007 and I've created a Win XP virtual PC.

    The vPC is configured to use my wireless network card on my laptop and is
    getting a valid network IP address in the same range / subnet as my laptop
    although according to my router it's not attached (wierd?!).

    My aptop can ping my virtual PC but my virtual PC cannot ping my laptop.
    Can someone show me how to do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Is your host OS set to allow answering Ping's?

    Also, make sure your drivers for the wireless card are up to date...

    Is the Windows Firewall, on your laptop, on or off?
