So you are saying you have been able to get the Windoze WiFi drivers to see the WiFi hardware in the host system via the virtual switch?

software. It knows nothing about the WiFi that eCS can use. WiFi is
nothing more than a cable replacement between a NIC and something else
(usually a wireless router). Think of it as a .............
No, that doesn't work. It *may* be possible to do that, if the virtualOK, so it's as I thought it worked then, nothing new here, just that you can access network attached devices (including printers) from within the virtual machine and use windows printers drivers to print to the network printers from the Windows OS.
machine software could be made to expose the actual hardware to the
guest software, but it currently doesn't do that. All that the guest
sees is the virtual cabled NIC. At the other end of that "cable", the
"physical" link to the router can be a WiFi link, but the guest knows
nothing about that.
