I thought that having a bridged network interface would be all that I needed, but I was incorrect. In order to use the wifi nic on the laptop, I had to define it to virtual box and enable it on the guest.

Because bridged makes it possible for the guest to use/share the hosts NICs as if they belonged to the guest? But can I assign the guest's IP (so I can hit the web services on the guest without adjusting the host file every time) ?

Not sure I'm following you, I expect the windows host to be the internet gateway, and the VM to communicate via a "wired" connection to and through the windows host.
