Hi! I've been trying to setup a virtual network using Microsoft virtual server 2007. The documentation is sketchy at best. I finally have it setup on 2003 server enterprise with 2003 server standard as the guest OS. I'm trying to get the network adapter to work. It first said it was unplugged ( it said it was an intel adapter), but then I clicked external network and it shows a 3com adapter, which I don't have. I figure it's the default adapter for the virtual machine. It shows as connected. I configured it with the settings for my subnet, then tried to ping computers on the subnet, and it timed out---didn't make the connection. I've been googling for a few days, and I found that you can use the physical adapter in the computer, but no where can I find out how to do this. How can i setup the guest OS to use the conputer's physical adapter? Any and all responses will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Pick the actual NIC from the list in the settings menu, Network.
