network inconsistencies with ubuntu 8.10 host and gentoo guest

Reported by: gaurdro Owned by:
Priority: major Component: network
Version: VirtualBox 2.2.0 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Linux


When starting a VM with NAT networking gentoo gets an address of from but no outside network connections can be made. 10.0.2.x addresses are pingable but anything in my network (not 10.x.x.x but 192.x.x.x) is not.

also, when using bridged networking the guest only will get a valid address every other time the vm is booted. If it gets a valid address, connectivity isn't an issue as it is above.

Can you explain no outside network connections can be made more in detail? Is that a nameserver problem or can't you even send packages to IPv4 addresses other than your host? Can you attach the VBox.log file?
