First which virtual machine?
Second what's the output of
Code:
ifconfig -a
on the virtual machine?
You need to check the wiki/online documentation of the virtual appliance you are using.

Let me explain more to you
My lap top IP is 192.168.1.77
Now , i am trying to ping from VMWare to this IP but without reply.
I think if i make the virtual machine see my lap top and ping it successfully
In this case , i will be able to connect to internet.
Please , Correct me if i am wrong

There are basically 4 ways to let a vm access networking. One is Nat, another is bridge, third is local and forth is no lan.

You need to start at your VM's documentation to see which one you wish to setup. One uses the VM's built in dhcp server so you get a subnet in the range of the VM's programming. The other uses what the host ip has.

You can see the vitual machine settings
(hard disk, cd rom, mrmory , networking, etc)
There you will see four options. Among them choose NAT, It will definitely work..
Let me know it is working or not?

Solution for internet connectivity over linux os in virtual box

HELLO GUYS
1. set the network connection on your virtual box as NAT.
2. Now start your os,go to the network settings in it, you would find there two Ethernet disconnected , select the add option and add VPN .
3. In VPN set your DNS, IP , subnet mask and router's address(run ipconfig /all in cmd and use the host addresses in VPN settings)
now restart your virtual machine
turn the Ethernet option ON
CHECK THE INTERNET CONNECTIVITY
In the WIRED NETWORK SETTINGS (ETHERNET) -Select ip4 settings ON and turn off ip6
It should work
If it doesn't work reply me back i would love to help you

All my Virtualbox VMs utilize the bridge adapter.
DHCP from the router.
Always works.
