The Guix manual also warns against using ping to test networking:

  The default run-vm.sh script that is returned by an invocation of guix
  system vm does not add a -nic user flag by default. To get network
  access from within the vm add the (dhcp-client-service) to your system
  definition and start the VM using $(guix system vm config.scm) -nic
  user. An important caveat of using -nic user for networking is that
  ping will not work, because it uses the ICMP protocol. You’ll have to
  use a different command to check for network connectivity, for example
  guix download.
