Is there someone who can please perform this experiment, or if you are knowledgeable, tell me the results - I've used VirtualBox and VMWare server, neither worked properly, as I wasn't able to go online in the virtual machine for unknown reasons.
In a virtual machine - running say Ubuntu or XP, it doesn't really matter. The VM will have a MAC address - probably a random number (if you are using VirtualBox).
Using a wireless router, have a look at the routers webpage (from a browser in the host) and see what mac address it is saying that it is connecting to.
Is it a) the Mac address of the virtual machine b) the Mac address of the host or c) both.
Thanks! I have a feeling that it is a certain answer, but I'd like to know what it is in reality.
