I don't know.
Why do you wish to use the USB network device by the guest?
I've got an ADSL PPPoE device and VBox settings are "Attached to NAT"
for the enabled network, resp. "PCnet-FAST III (NAT).
I noticed that for USB there are the shadowed options "Enable USB
controller" and "Enable USB 2.0 (EHCI) controller". On my machine only
"Enable USB controller" is checked.
