VirtualBox machine has different Default Gateway

I have Windows 8.1 as my host machine and
under virtual box  I am trying to run Windows 7.

But the issue is from Windows 7 I am not able to access my host on network.
I came to know that the network settings are different on Windows 7 like Default Gateway.

I need to know what settings I need to do so that I can access my host machine from my Virtual box windows 7.

you mean to say that from windows 7 machine you are not able to access windows 8 host machine? or you are not able to access other machine which are in the network ?

by default when you create Virtual machine in virtual box it use NAT network in that vm will be communicated with host machine.

From Windows 7 machine, I am not able to access the host machine when I do \\192.168.5.1 (ip Address of host machine).

I don't have any other machine on the network.

If you want all hosts to be seeing each other then you should not use NAT but use bridged network.  This way your guest VM will obtain IP from your DHCP server (if you have statically assigned them then you can assign 192.168.x.x address on your guest VM).
