Answering my own question, with suggestions from a couple of other
people, I installed the latest VirtualBox then powered off the VM and
manually assigned the wifi card to the machine. Power back on and all
is now working.

I'm not sure exactly what the technical difference is from what I was
trying last night apart from the newer version but all is working
happily now.
