After you perform these steps, your virtual machine will be able to connect to the Internet through the AirPort adapter of your Mac.
When you try to connect to the Internet via WiFi, and the WiFi Access Point has the Validate DHCP packets option enabled, you may experience problems with connecting to the Internet. In this case, enable the Send the host's MAC address to DHCP server option to ensure that your virtual machine gets an IP address for accessing the Internet.
Note: Enabling the Send the host's MAC address to DHCP server option will not work with some DHCP servers - your virtual machine may get the same IP address as the physical computer has.
If you want to prevent Virtual Machine Configuration from further unauthorized changes, click the Lock icon at the bottom of the window. The next time someone wants to change the settings on any pane of Virtual Machine Configuration, an administrator's password will be required.
