I need help in solving this problem thats driving me nuts. The problem seems to be rare as I could only find a handful of resources (after much searching) which are already quite old and not useful.
The problem: My internet stops working as soon as I run Virtualbox. I mean before even running the guest system, my wireless internet connection goes from Connected to Identifying.. and never recovers. I have to restart the whole PC to get the connection back.
I have researched the internet but not many people have this issue hence, not much info is available. Most of people's troubles relate to internet connection sharing or making internal networks (which I will come to once the current problem is solved).
The Specs: *Host System:* Windows Vista Home Premium, Guest System: Ubuntu 12.04, VirtualBox: 4.2.16, Host Network: Realtek RTL8187B Wireless 802.11g 54Mbps USB 2.0 Network Adapter
What I have already tried:
I had installed Ubuntu 12.04 side-by-side to the Vista in the past. Virtualbox worked fine and my guest systems (also Ubuntu 12.04) worked without issues. Currently, I only have vista installed.
This link says I have to disable Virtualbox Host-Only Adapter which I already did to no avail.
This link says the poster reinstalled the Vbox without networking which solved his problem. But that didnt help me either.
I'll be grateful if someone can help.
