Updating interface of windows 8 cloud romance dating site
NAT, etc also didn't work for some odd/unexplained reason.
Luckily enough 4.2.16 was release and waddayaknow, it fixed something and i was able to select my NIC for a bridged interface.
I noticed that I had many network cards labeled "Virtual Box Bridged Networking Driver Miniport" with a yellow exclamation mark, remaining in Windows Device Manager, but impossible to delete them.
The common trend seems to be the loss of Windows 8.1 gateway information in both scenarios. Furthermore, the uninstall will NOT remove Virtualbox ethernet adapter, and you can't able to remove it manually (but at least the internet connection come back).
Edit-To supply additional info: Do you have any custom networking-related software installed on your win8.1 host? antivirus/firewall/VPN slient/other hypervisors/etc. EDIT: On reinstall Virtualbox install one more Ethernet adapter, it not use the old one, and still can't delete the adapters.
The connection will not get dhcp until I disabled the "Virtualbox bridged networking driver" in the connection properties.
As soon as I do that, I can bring the connection down and back up with out issue and then enable the driver again and all works.Bridging is working, VB Setup is fast to complete, and Windows network is not broken anymore.I think Windows 8.1 upgrade is somehow corrupting Windows registry, leading to this error.PS : I also ran /scannnow to detect any possible error in Windows, but it didn't found anything, and I don't think it helped to solve the issue.
