Android Chroot Archlinux no internet except as root

I've been messing around with a rooted android tablet and have gotten archlinux to be able to run in a chrooted environment. The process involves these commands

# mount -t proc proc /sdcard/sd/arch/proc
# mount --bind /sys /sdcard/sd/arch/sys
# mount --bind  /dev /sdcard/sd/arch/dev
# chroot /sdcard/sd/arch
so, as I understand, it utilizes the devices and drivers of the host android system.

The problem is that when I chroot in the only user that can access the internet is root. Trying to ping as a normal user gives a 'permission denied' (I do not remember the exact wording). I need help giving normal privileged users access to the internet. I am not familiar with Arch, but from some research it seems as though there is no net group that the user needs to be added to. I am suspecting that the problem is related to the permissions being carried over from the android host. Any ideas?
