I had exactly the same problem with vbox. The issue came already up on 
this mailinglist around Q1 2011. VBox and VMware are known to work with 
only ONE mac address for ONE virutal device. Bridging ist not possible 
inside the guest. Create a virtualdevice in VBox and attach it as 
physical device to the container (as Ulli described it).
