This is a very simple problem.
Virtualbox doesn't use the wifi hardware that you have. It creates a virtual ethernet card (generally one that is very well supported across all OSs, such as the Intel you selected in your network settings for the Arch virtual machine used), and passes the internet connection from your host machine along to the VM.
Can you not connect to the Internet on your Arch VM? If so, it's almost certainly a configuration error in the network settings for your virtual machine and not in linux: double check the settings (and use the VirtualBox online manual to get more information about how it works, it's there for a reason!!!!!).
