Networking Ubuntu on VirtualBox on Vista

I've got a factory install of Vista Home Premium (32 bit) on an AMD64 box, and VirtualBox running on that. When I boot a Ubuntu 7.10 CD, it does not automatically have network access.

I've tried several combinations of virtual NICs in virtualbox, and within Ubuntu I've tried roaming (whatever that is), static IP, and DHCP. Ubuntu seems to find the NICs okay, but I cannot ping anything.

The physical NIC is a Linksys Wireless-G card, and it's on a DHCP enabled LAN. The router itself has a static lan-facing IP.

What configurations have worked for people running ubuntu on vbox on vista?

Do I have to enable ICS or the like on the host (vista) machine?

I'm not at that machine now, so going from memory it's the defaults, which I believe is PCNet 3 / NAT. And from there I tried several combinations between the two settings.. and I also tried adding an internal network adapter. I also tried turning on ICS in Vista, and setting it so the vbox virtual NIC would have access to it. That did not work either.
