I'm running a Fedora 17 desktop system that I've decided to put an OEL 6 virtual machine on. I built the VM first with virtual network NAT the default but discovered that only the host could communicate with it. After reading the available documentation (which I probably should have done first) I found that I needed to use a bridged network on the host so the VM would be available on my LAN.
Is there a way of wireless networking without using the Gnome NetworkManager Applet? I want to connect to the Internet using a USB 3G modem and connect to wifi without knowing all of the details of every network.
