how do I define network adapter for Windows Virtual PC on Windows 7

Last Modified: 2012-05-07
My OS is Windows 7.
I've installed Microsoft Virtual PC.
Virtaul PC recognizes my wireless network adapter but it doesn't recognize my network adapter
Shared Networking (NAT) is not running for the virtual PC.
On Settings -> Networking -> Network Adapters, wireless network adapter can be introduced but not my network adapter.
Hardware assisted virtualization is disabled. I don't know why.

I've read the article http://blogs.msdn.com/virtual_pc_guy/archive/2005/01/06/347965.aspx
Virtual PC gets and automatic IP together with DNS ''  but I can't ping to other computers.

In the past, when I had Vista, it was working fine.

I've tried Microsoft Loopback adapter and it doesn't work.
I've tried Virnet virtual network adapter and it doesn't work.

What I want is so simple. I want to connect other computers from my virtual PC but I can't.
windows XP is installed on my Virtual PC and my host operating system is Windows 7.

Kind regards
