    XP guest networking issue on virtualboc


    I am running Mint 14 on dedicated partition in dual boot win 7 which I do not use. I have Oracle VB 4.2.2 installed and just succeeded installing fully functional XP minus its ability to recognize my wireless network. Any suggestions appreciated

    Virtualbox won't have a wireless network card. It uses a virtual network device that actually talks to your network using the hardware in your computer. I've never used a Windows guest but Linux guests show it as eth0 which is typically wired.
