Hi Chandrat, welcome to the Seven Forums.

How to connect Windows XP VirtualBox guest to network using host's wireless connection:
  • Shut down XP guest
  • Open XP guest settings
  • Select Netwok on the left pane and set / change / select following values (list item numbers correspond to those in the screenshot below):
    1. Select Adapter 1
    2. Check that Network Adapter is enabled
    3. Attached to: Bridget Adapter
    4. Name: Select your host machine's WiFi adapter from drop down list
    5. Click Advanced
    6. Adapter Type: Select PCnet-PCI or PCnet FAST adapter from drop down list
    7. Select Cable connected (1)

  • Click OK to save and close settings
  • Launch XP guest, you should now be able to connect to network

(1) = Cable connected here does not mean your host must / should be connected to router / modem with cable. The guest vm emulates a wired connection using above mentioned PCnet PCI or FAST network controller. This setting tells the guest if emulated network is connected (think it as network cable on a physical machine). If you deselect Cable connected here, the guest vm when launched sees that network adapter is present but network cable is not connected so connection won't and can't work.

Hey Kari! Could you help me too please.

I'm glad to see that you're still here after many years as you seem very helpful.

I've installed XP Professional on VirtualBox and was having trouble connecting to the internet. I followed your directions above and when I restarted the vm, the internet connection icon appeared in the toolbar but after several seconds of searching it gave me the "limited or no connectivity icon". I'm not sure what else to try and any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Also, I'm on a University campus where we must submit our MAC addresses before we can connect to the internet and I'm not sure how that plays into things so I tried connecting the host to the "Visitor" network on the host computer and then connecting to the internet in the vm and I got the same thing.

Thanks in advance!
