virtualbox xp guest, no internet

Post by » Tue Aug 14, 2012 12:01 pm

I have just installed Mint 13 Mate host os, and installed xp pro in virtualbox to run netflix.

I connect to the net through a wireless atheros card.

Searching forums, people say to change to bridged in vbox's network settings. I have tried all the options in vbox's network; NAT, bridged, Internal, Host-only, unchecking the cable connected box; still nothing.

Bridged gives me the connected but limited or no connectivity bubble, with zero connectivity.

I have added no firewall or antivirus in xp

Really really stumped, please help!

I think you need to try the virtualbox forums, because the settings you need to alter are greyed out, in the name box you should have wlan0 and in the promiscuous mode you should have allow VMs. It may be the card or driver that you use, hope this is of some use to you
