Did you connect the cloud to the internet, as documented on https://docs.openstack.org/devstack/l... ?

I don’t know if WLAN works. One requirement is a static IP address, which you often don’t get from a wireless interface.

What confuses me: Does the VBox VM have a WLAN interface? If yes, it should be simple to create a VM that only has wired interfaces.
