Hello. Its me again. So, i have a Windows 2000 Datacenter Server SP4 virtual machine in VirtualBox. I want to be able to get it on the internet because i found a browser for it. K-meleon, which version 74 works and they are only at 75.1, and its a secondary browser my the Mozilla Project i think? It dosent get updated much.

Anyways, to the point. I don't know how to get it on the internet. I did have a WiFi adapter, but i lost the driver cd, and i don't know how to connect to the internet to download them in the VM. Anyways, how do i connect my VM to the internet? I understand it may not load some things or its insecure etc. etc. i take that risk using Windows XP already.

Did you install the Guest Additions inside the VM? It is under the VB Devices pull down menu,

If you select NAT as the network adapter in the VM, it should have no problems connecting to the internet. That's what I use on my VirtualBox VMs.
