I had something similar a while ago. Are you able to use the internet when you don't specify a URL but use an IP address instead? I.e. what happens when you go to 74.125.224.72? –  Tomas Jan 22 '13 at 14:35

In the window showing the guest, right-click on the network icon (two computer monitors) and click Network Adapters. Select Attached to Bridged Adapter and make sure that "Cable connected" is checked. Click OK.
