You have to take care of your Virtual Machine (VM) Ethernet setting. 
Your VM network connection can be: bridged, NAT or host-only. (1) It 
seems you have a host-only connection. It implies that your VM and host 
system can't communicate at all. In host-only mode, VM don't see the 
outside, and so the Internet. (2) The 'bridged' connection is the 
simplest solution: Kyle instructions will work. But you need a DHCP 
server on your network in order to lease an IP address to your VM. Even 
in this case, you may encounter some very tricky issues depending of VM 
Linux OS security policy. (3) NAT setting: don't rember... but I'm 
almost sure  it won't work since host and VM share a unique IP address.
