Adding and removing virtual network adapters

Adding and removing virtual network adapters

You can install as many as four network adapters on a virtual machine. The virtual machine must be turned off before you can add or remove a network adapter.

You can configure each network adapter to use one of the network connections described in the following table. When you configure a network adapter, the list of available connections will display the names assigned to the virtual networks and not the names listed in the following table.
