bridged connection between virtualbox vm and windows host

I have a problem at bridged connection between virtualbox vm and windows host.

1. host
windows 7 x64.
192.168.0.2

2. virtualbox guest
scientific linux 6.2 x86
192.168.0.5
bridged adapter
20120323_1_sl_vb.jpg

I could not make a ping to gateway and open web pages at vm. So I tried these two ways.

1) disabled windows firewall and uninstalled vaccine.
2) install comodo internet security and add VirtualBox.exe and VBoxSVC.exe to Trusted Files".

Please let me know how to make network connection with vm and windows host with bridged adapter for getting ip 192.168.0.x.

Thanks in advance.

I've never had much success connecting Linux to a Windows host using the "Network" icon in the file manager but I can connect if I use smb://Your Host PC Name/ in the address bar . It then connects to any shares you have.

Did virtualbox linux get a dynamic ip address? So 192.168.0.5 was given to linux by dhcp server?
Can linux ping 192.168.0.2 (windows)?
can windows ping 192.168.0.5 (linux)?
Can linux ping ip-address-router?
Can windows ping ip-address-router?

So linux can ping router. Router is same as gateway. But you told before "I could not make a ping to gateway"
totally confused.

Kaktussoft/

The "/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/router-eth0" is this.
Code:
ADDRESS0=192.168.0.0
NETMASK0=255.255.255.0
GATEWAY0=192.168.0.1
Please understood I'm not an expert og linux. I installed linux following some guide documents, but I lost for years.
