Welcome to SuperUser! The best way to add additional information to your question is by editing it, with the edit button. It is better visible that way, and comments are mainly for secondary, temporary purposes. Comments are removed under a variety of circumstances. Anything important to your question should be in the question itself. – Danatela May 12 '14 at 9:30
I couldn't add my image in content since my reputation <10. So, I added them in comments – user3616287 May 12 '14 at 9:33
No, you should add them inside post. Other members will edit your post and include those images in it if they are appropriate. If the system doesn't allow you to post URLs (no more 2 are allowed for new users), you should include them in backticks `. – Danatela May 12 '14 at 9:43
Now, to the question: Does Ubuntu connect to the Internet? Are you behind a proxy or firewall? Also, does VirtualBox use NAT or bridge connection? – Danatela May 12 '14 at 9:52

Probably, you should set up DNS in Windows. To do this:

  1. Click on Change Adapter Settings link left of network view.

  2. Right-click on your Network Adapter. Choose Properties.

  3. This window will appear:

    Select item that selected in the above example and click Properties

  4. This window will appear:

    Enter those DNS into appropriate fields:
  5. Click OK twice. Your network should work fine.

Refer to this article for further information.
