Just to clarify, 'Cable Connected' is a setting selection (checkbox).  Is "No Cable Available" the error you received?

Oh! No.  I mistook what you were saying.  I meant i only have wireless on this laptop.

I run virtuals all day on my laptop (wireless connectivity).  I use the NAT - Cable Connected setting for all of my virtuals with no issues to date (knock on wood)!

NAT - Cable Connected is normally provided by default.

We've seen issues in using Virtualbox with Wireless Networking cards, it does not appear to function correctly.
