If you have successfully gotten a DHCP lease in VirtualBox, then you should already be connected to the Internet. Perhaps a better question would be what you want to do on the Internet. You will need to use the appropriate software depending on what tasks you actually want to perform online.

For a browser, install lynx or links (two different programs; links might be a little easier to get used to). I think they are both in the Redhat repos.

There's a number of text email clients.
