I am using a custom version of OpenWRT linux that is used as a dev enviroment for a a graphic library. I am using it as a Virtualbox image. The distro contains a proxy module that needs to access the network and be assigned it's own IP. I set the network settings to "Internal Network" and now I am stumped on how to log into my network.

The distro is all command line, can anyone tell me how to access the network?


You'll want to set up the VM in virtualbox so that it has a a bridged adapter. See the official docs, or read here: http://catlingmindswipe.blogspot.com/2012/06/how-to-virtualbox-networking-part-two.html

Giving it a bridged adapter will allow it to be on the same network that your host machine is on, as this is what i think you mean when you say "it needs its own ip".
