First of all welcome to the forums!

The network card you've bridged, is the same that you're using to connect the host? It can fail if you're not using that wifi connection or it's disabled.

Another thing that came to my attention is the IP of the guest. 192.268.178.107. Is it a typo or it's really 268 instead of 168?. In any case, both the guest and host must be on the same subnet (192.168.178.xxx) and have different values for the last digits, which you have the same (again, tell us if it's that way or just a mistake).

Also, if, on the guest, you leave the configuration as automatic, what values do you get when you run an ipconfig from command line?

sorry it was a typo 192.168.178.31 for the guest it should be
if i leave it on automatic i get 192.168.137.1
subnet 255.255.255.0
gateway 0.0.0.0 dns 0.0.0.0
yes it is the same connection i use to access the internet
all are on the same subnet i can ping the host it just dont see the internet
i can ping the machine from a different computer
