Don't get issues, get a subscription!

Rseriously,  You _have_ to itemize what you've done.  You _think_
you have 'all the pertintent kernel modules loaded', but nobody
else can tell whetehr or not that is true.  Similarly, you THINK
youve 'tried all differen combinations', but you obviously haven't
tried the 'right' one. ;)

You need to specify with some _precision_, what you _expect_ to 
accomplish. *details* of what you'vetried, and _precisely_ how the 
results differ from your expectations.

At an absolute minimum, you'll need to provide the output
from 'ifconfig -a'  run _outside_ the virtualbox, and the
output from the same command run _inside_ the virtualbox.
Also 'netstat -nr' from both environments.
