I don't see any network adapters in the ouput you showed me. First of all, Is the problem with your virtual machine or the host? IF it is the virtual machine you'll probably only have to enable the interface. I haven't use virtual box in a long time but in vmware you can allow the virtual host to see the real, physical host devices trough the vmware menus.

If you are trying to troubleshoot the real, physical host then a good place to start is to check weather or not the OS detected with the following command

lspci
make sure you post the output here.

Just so I'm clear on the issue... on the HOST operating system you have connectivity... on the GUEST operating system, you do NOT have connectivity. Yes? No? Corrections?

then do the lspci command on the virtual machine.
