Virtual PC’s IE6 Connecting to the Internet or Network

November 6th, 2007

This is more for myself than anyone else; so that I remember it again in 6 months. I was having trouble connecting to the internet using IE6 when I loaded it in my Virtual PC. This is a two step process.

First step:

1. In the Virtual PC Console click ‘Settings’.
2. Click ‘Network’.
3. Change the ‘Adapter’ to the way you wish to connect to the internet, be it Wireless card or Ethernet card.

Second step:

1. Open Internet Explorer from the VPC Console.
2. Follow ‘Tools’ > ‘Internet Options…’ > ‘Connections’ > ‘Setup’
3. Follow ‘Next’ > ‘Connect to the Internet’ > ‘Set up my connection manually’ > ‘Connect using a broadband connection that is always on’ > ‘Finish’
4. Back in the ‘Connections’ tab select ‘LAN Settings’ and turn off the ‘Proxy server’ if it is ticked.

Thats it.
