Gudday everyone.

Looking for some help with a VM not being able to access the internet.

Running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 on a dell laptop. My internet access is at university via wireless with wpa2-enterprise security, peap and aes encryption.

I have oracle virtual box running an ubuntu vm, the latest i think 11.04. It installed fine, but now i have no access to the internet. I have tried changing virtualbox network settings i.e host/nat/bridged and setting the proxy in ubuntu, but to no avail.

Any thoughts?

Are you trying wireless over the VM using the hosts PCI wireless card, or an external wireless card? Virtual Machines, can only use the wired ethernet NIC, or external USB for WiFi. They can not use internal WiFi cards and has been something they lack for years now. At least in VMware, not sure if VirtualBox has implemented support for internet wireless devices, but general rule of thumb is use either the wired internal for a VM, or a USB external for Wireless in a VM.

If however you are already using a wireless adapter via USB and the VM can not logon, chances are they have either MAC address filtering, or MACsec in place, and the devices is not allowed on the network.

Make sure the network interface on your VM is set to bridged mode. if you are able to detect the wired/wireless card at all.
