I have loaded OS on multiple VM's. The installs were clean with no problems. The issue I am having is how do I get internet connection through those hosts.

I am using my wireless connection at my house. Sometimes I also use my tethered blackberry modem connection while I am on the go or in the office.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

When you configure a VM you can choose a number of different network adapter settings. For your use you need to choose either <b>Bridged</b> or <b>NAT</b>. At home I assume you have a router that acts as a DHCP server. If so I would use <b>Bridged</b>. This will have your VM act as it is attached to the physical network and should receive an IP address from your router. However, when you are tethered to your blackberry you will need to share the PCs address (since there is no DHCP server on your side) so you should choose NAT for that configuration.
