I am using a HP desktop  with vista 64 bit  GNS3 running. I want to bridge one of the router in GNS3 to my wireless router. I have created a loopback and assigned the NIC to the cloud. assign IP address with router and loopback on the same subnet but then I cannot ping the loopback therefore cannot access the internet. I disable windows firewall and Norton and it still fails. Please let me know how I can resolve this.

I have finally resolved this issue. The problem was security in the wireless router. I cloned the mac address and I can now acess the internet from my GNS3 lab
