I have WinXP installed in two MS Virtual PCs (v2007).  VPC_a has complete connection and works fine.  VPC_b can't surf the net, access the local network or ping.

I viewed the Network Adapters in Device Manager.  VPC_b has these:
- Intel 21140-Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter (Generic)
- Intel 21140-Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter (Generic) - Packet Scheduler Miniport
- WAN Miniport (IP) - Packet Scheduler Miniport

The last two items have exclamation points.  VPC_a only has the first item.  It also has a Local Network in its Network Connections.  VPC_b has nothing.  I can't set up a new network via the wizard because I get a message that the wizard cannot find my hardware.

Any suggestions on how I can get VPC_b working?
