Please post the output from ifconfig.

Also, which Linux distribution did you install?

Welcome to LinuxQuestions.

In addition you could be looking at a IPV6 vs IPV4 IP address.

Code:
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 08:00:27:b0:9d:ad  
   IPV4-> inet addr:192.168.0.211  Bcast:192.168.0.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
   IPV6-> inet6 addr: fe80::a00:27ff:feb0:9dad/64 Scope:Link
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
         .
         .

True, we may not have enough information on how you configured networking for your guest. The default mode is NAT and if your guest is using dhcp will assign an IP address of 10.0.2.15. If the guest is trying to use a real wireless network adapter it must be a USB device. With VB there is no such thing as bridge and wireless connection.
