No internet connection inside VirtualBox
Posted August 6, 2014on:
Greetings from Windows XP inside VirtualBox!
When you create the virtual machine, you have to be careful of the network settings. For me, I choose ‘Bridged Adapter’ (this means the VM will be another computer on the same LAN as the host). *And* choose ‘PCnet-FAST III’ in the advanced settings part. The default ‘Intel’ option won’t work.
Now at least the vm can ping the host. Running ‘ipconfig’ on the vm will list some network interface information too. The shared folder finally shows up in ‘My Computer’ as ‘Shared Network Drive’. The world can go on now.
