    Do you get network connections for other uses?
    Can you use internet browsers as normal?
    Are you using a NAT or bridged connection in your Windows guest?

    Yes, browsing the internet just fine. NAT.

    Sometimes we have to go to the manual: https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/Us...ttings-network
    But definitely check out the stuff posted above first.

    Go to the Settings for this virtual machine and switch the adapter from NAT to bridged. Any better?
