Start from the defaults, make small changes one by one:
(1) Start a simple container using "download" template, selecting ubuntu
16.04 when prompted. DO NOT change anything. Are you able to use lxc-attach
and access the internet? If NO, then your host setup is messed up. I
suggest start from scratch (possibly on a VM)

(2) you can NOT use macvlan / bridge-host-interface on wifi. Try on simple
wired interfaces first (again, use VMs if you have to).
https://www.flockport.com/lxc-macvlan-networking/ should be a good place to

(3) There IS a way to make what you want kinda-possible, with proxy arp and
static IP. But it's complicated. Don't bother trying it if you can't even
have (1) and (2) running yet.
