Many people love the intel MacBooks and the ability to run Windows via the software program named Parallels.

Once you connect with your EVDO Card (Novatel V640 ExpressCard or Franklin CDU-550) on your Mac, Parallels wouldn't "see" the internet, so you couldn't access the internet under Parallels.

The tech note below, will step you through the simple configuration changes to allow a single EVDO card to be shared on your Mac and Parallels:

A few comments on this.

You will need to switch your DNS settings back within the Parallels' Windows install when you are not connected to Verizon or Sprint's mobile broadband network. Disable sharing too when not needed (Parallels doesn't need the OS X Internet sharing since it already hooks into Ethernet and Airport for your local network).

If you run your OWN DNS server (locally, on the same machine), use it, and then you will not have to switch back and forth.

If you do not see the "Ethernet" ports, you may need to:

- Uninstall VZAccess 3.0.1
- Reboot
- Install VZAccess 3.0.1
- Run Activation
- Connect with VZAccess.

I very carefully followed the instructions in the "Sharing Your EVDO Connection with Parallels" and am unable to connect in Windows.

In windows when I run ipconfig in a command window I get the following:

connection-specific DNS suffix: sub-75-202-116.myvzw.com
IP address: 192.168.2.4
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 192.168.2.1

I appers that I have an IP address but the DNS is not the one I entered in the IP/TCP configuration dialog box.

Does any one have additional suggestions. I am using the bridged default network connector in Parallels. My only option is to select a bridged connection. On the mac side internet sharing recognizes that is is sharing with the embedded Windows machine.

If using Build 3036 Beta, all you have to do is change your network adaptor settings to shared networking. Make sure that you change back your networked adaptor setings to bridged if your not going to use your evdo card(using a 640). Hope this helps!

The latest non beta build will allow for the connection to be shared in Parallels by simply choosing shared networking as well. (For people of non-beta fans;-) )

Simply update your Parallels by clicking on help>Check for updates>Check Now Button.

This will give you build 1970 as of current. Allow the file to Download and install it from your desktop. You will have the "Best of Both Worlds" Laughing

Perhaps things are different with the RC3 build of Parallels, but if I start up Parellels first, and then connect my Verizon USB720 modem, Parallels picks up the connection instantly. I'm using shared networking in Parallels running XP. On the other hand, if I connect the modem first, Parallels tells me it cannot connect to network adaptor "unknown", and won't let me start up the virtual machine.

From what I can tell, you need to connect the modem first in your Mac environment. When you have your Parrallels application open and the network selected to shared networking, this will allow the internet connection to carry over to the Virtual OS environment as well.

As far as the Verizon USB720, I have not tinkered with that as of yet in Parrallels.

Happy Computing;-)

I am trying to get a Verizon USB&@) to access the Internet from Windows on my MacBookPro 2.4 ghz running Parallels. I followed the steps at evdoinfo.com/content/view/849/63/ but I did not see anything in the drop down list that looked anything like QLM-640-pccard. Any advice would be appreciated!

Thank you,
Rich

Note that Fusion works quite well with sharing the modem. I did not have any problems, other than emulation speed, with Fusion.
