Windows on Mac

Hi,

I just bought MacBook Pro with Parallels Desktop installed on it. Now I can use both Mac and Windows XP same time.
How do I configure network for windows XP? I don't see any PC in the Workgroup.
Thanks in advance.

If I set it to shared only internet works without showing PCs in the network, but when I set it to bridged (Default adapter) it show limited connectivity.

set it to bridge mode, shutdown xp in parallel and then reboot your mac.

once mac is reboot, retry parallel and let me know if you have an internet connection
