My wife uses Parallels for Mac 3.0 on her MacBook Pro running Mac OSX 10.4.  The Mac OS allows her to connect to the Internet using WIFI, but Windows does not. Please offer suggestions for fixing this issue.  It used to work, but after reinstalling Parallels, it stopped working.  BTW, she also uses Verizon's VZ Access Manager for cellular broadband access on the Mac OS side.

Configure parallels network as bridged so it will use OSX's wifi/broadband card to access the internet.

I found the problem. The network adapter in Windows had a static local  IP and no DNS entries.  Once I changed it to use DCHP all was well.
