Hi,

I am running Linux Mint 11 in VirtualBox on my Windows XP host and I am unable to get to Google. My Windows host uses a wireless card, and I've tried NAT option for the Network Adapters in Mint, still no internet. Any assistance will be appreciated.

From which did you install VB on?
Open a terminal and run: lsmod | grep vb
Post the results.

Thank you for your reply DevPer94.

I restarted the VB and Mint and suddenly it's working. I'm not sure why, maybe it needed a restart.

To answer your question, I installed VirtualBox on Windows XP.

Anyway, I still ran "lsmod | grep vb" after my internet connection started working, but got no reply.

However, after I restarted VB and Mint, I noticed my user name changed to [email protected]
