I am trying to setup a simple Linux machine on a Windows XP machine iwith Virtual Box. At this point I have it to where I can access the network and ping the router, I am able to even SSH from the world (I forwarded traffic on port 22 to it). The only thing I can't do is connect to the internet..

I am curious if it is actually the XP machine that is blocking access to the internet but not sure.. I am using a wireless connection, but I don't think that has anything to do with it since I can access the network. I have tried this several times unsuccessfully, but I am not backing down this time :)

Any ideas? When I run netstat -rt I get
