Configure Parallels Desktop nic to emulate Wireless nic

I'm running a win10 vm in parallels desktop on my mac, and I need to configure the nic in the win10 to look like wireless nic. I need to set win10 as metered and it needs to be wireless.

I'm using wireless on the my mac, but the win10 vm sees it as a wired connection.  I checked in the settings for the nic in the vm settings and there no wireless nic to choose, just wired.

Correct, this is because the virtual hardware in the VM, is for a wired device not a wireless device.

All hypervisors I've seen for the PC and Mac, the virtual hardware in the VM, is for a wired device.

So I'm afraid this is not possible.

On VirtualBox and VMware Workstation player you can attach USB devices and WLAN adapters via the menu of the Hypervisor, for example in VBox via "Devices", "USB", or "Network", and then they will also show as the wireless device they are. But it must be a dedicated device for the VM, you can't be using it at the same time on your host. I'm sure Parallels has a similar option somewhere. But you would have to get a wireless USB dongle as a 2nd wireless NIC,
