Upgrade Maverick as soon as you can. Maverick is EOL so you will get no updates and no support. If you set the networking of the guest OS to bridged it should work.

Hi ,
I agree with @actionparsnip. Upgrade to a newer and supported version of Ubuntu.

For Ubuntu's versions details see here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases

I suggest the 12.04 LTS (supported until April 2017). Fresh install recommended.

As for the VB problem , see this answer here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/25596/set-up-usb-for-virtualbox

You have to enable the USB support , because your Internet modem is USB (as you said)


Can you help with this problem?
