Windows 7: Internet sharing from virtual box Windows XP to Windows 7

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Internet sharing from virtual box Windows XP to Windows 7

Recently I have installed Virtual Box on my Windows 7 because i wanted to install Windows xp. The specific reason to install windows xp was because that I have a Adsl modem Speedtouch Thomson 330 whose drivers only Work with Windows xp and Vista and doesn't work with Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate. Now i have a internet successfully running in Windows xp inside the virtual Box and i want it to share with my Windows 7. So that i can enjoy the Internet on Windows 7 also.
I have been trying to solve this issue for 2 days now and have worked with all the four options inside the Network adapters like NAT, Host only, Bridged etc But no success so far. The virtual Box Host only Ethernet adapter showing in network adapters in windows 7 always shows Unidentified Network. Please advice the settings how to proceed inside Windows xp, Virtual box and Windows 7 step by step.
Thank you-

I am running Windows 7 Prof. 64 bit / Win 8 64 bit. Most campus nodes are on 7 32 bit

Wouldn't it just be easier to upgrade your internet service? However I found a Windows 7 driver to your to your modem. Hope it works.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

These are Xp Drivers that won't work with Windows 7 64 bit. Officially the manufacturing company only released Vista 64bit drivers and even those don't work with Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
However i have found another solution to the problem. So thanks for the reply.
