Just for clarification: As the name, virtual machine (VM), states, they emulate a complete PC, using virtual hardware. This includes really the complete PC, all parts, except the CPU. There is the possibility to pass through USB devices to a virtual machine, so that the guest OS can access those devices in a native way. The same function for PCI(e) is currently only experimental.
So in short: Regardless which OS you install into the VM, it will always see a virtual wired network interface.
Isn't wired interface somehow on the same hardware architecture layer as the wireless PCI?
(Just curious )
I think that maybe you are still missing the point. The operating system in the virtual machine does not see the real/host "physical" wired interface.
What it sees is an emulation of a wired device provided by the virtual machine.
If you run lspci in your guest and host OSs you should see *very* different things that will be corresponding to eth0 on the two OSs.
