virtualbox xp guest, no internet. Mint 13 Mate host
I have just installed Mint 13 Mate host os, and installed xp pro in virtualbox to run netflix.
I connect to the net through a wireless atheros card.
Searching forums, people say to change to bridged in vbox's network settings. I have tried all the options in vbox's network; NAT, bridged, Internal, Host-only, unchecking the cable connected box; still nothing.
Bridged gives me the connected but limited or no connectivity bubble, with zero connectivity.
I have added no firewall or antivirus in xp
Really really stumped, please help!
