Alexy,

Thanks.

Your guess is correct. If I disable those network drivers, then wireless display behaves as normal. so, it is the network drivers causing the issue.

I noted windows 8.1 has a wifi direct virtual network adapter, perhaps, vbox shouldn't bridge that adapter?

Wireless LAN adapter Local Area Connection* 12:

   Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected
   Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :

   Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : C8-F7-33-DD-F6-86
   DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
   Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes

might be vbox-network drivers ?

Can you install VBox without network drivers? (no bridge and no host-mode)
