That sounds like your machine did not receive the gateway information. That information travels to your machine together with the IP - i.e. when the router/VM HUB gives your machine the IP it also informs the machine its gateway.
Can you check if the machine has an IP when connected? ifconfig on MS Windows, ipconfig on Mac, ip on Linux. It should also print the gateway, post those here if they start with 192.168.xxx.xxx , otherwise please mask some digits.
