I am trying to move from VMware Fusion to VirtualBox since Fusion 3.0 is not working since I upgraded to Mountain Lion. VirtualBox is working but I cannot connect to the Internet on my guest OS (Windows XP). I am new to VirtualBox, so any help will be appreciated.

How have you configured the network interface? – Gerry Aug 18 '12 at 7:48

Try this:

  • Be sure that you have installed the latest version of Guest Additions to the VM

  • Turn off the VM

  • Under the network adapter configuration choose bridged mode

  • Then click in advanced and change the adapter type to Intel PRO/1000 MT Server (82545EM). -Be sure to enable the checkbox "Cable Connected"

Worked for me, hope it helps
