• If you want to be able to sign in to the VM without having to go through the host, use Bridging, not NAT.
"You should be able to use bridged with wireless.


un the Virtual Network Editor and make sure the bridged adapter (VMNet0) is set for automatic and has your wireless and wired adapters checked in automatic settings. If so, uncheck one and apply and then check it and apply again to “goose” the settings. This works for me on the rare occasion that the automatic setup fails to pull a IP from my router (wired and wireless). I do turn off the Bluetooth and VirtualBox adapters in the automatic settings. I run both wireless and wired in a laptop with XP and Server guests.“
