Guests on Linux host have flaky network access when bridged across wireless

Across two computers, across a couple of Linux distros (Fedora and openSUSE), across Windows and Linux guests, across 6 months:

When I set a VM to use bridged networking to my wifi card, the guest has spotty access to the Internet. Other computers on the LAN can talk to the guest just fine, but if the guest tries to talk to anything on the Internet 9 times out of 10 it'll get some variant of "connection reset".

This only occurs when bridged to my wireless card (I've tried on different networks, and it's the same)- bridging to my Ethernet card causes no problems.

I have the same problem. Host CentOS 6.3 with virtualbox 4.2.12, guest CentOS 5.9 bridged to wireless network adapter. When bridged to etherenet works fine. On win Vista host everything works fine too.
