VirtualBox Host-Only does not report itself as a virtual adapter on Windows 7

Reported by: Kiran Kashalkar Owned by:
Priority: major Component: network/hostif
Version: VirtualBox 4.2.4 Keywords:

Host type: Windows


I installed VirtualBox and had the Juniper Pulse client configured with a profile that suppresses wireless connections on Windows 7 when a wired connection is detected.

Microsoft reported the VirtualBox host-only network adapter as a wired connection and caused suppression of wireless networks causing loss of connectivity when not wired in.

This is a blocker for non-advanced users who cannot modify profiles or kill applications that suppress wireless connections when wired connections are detected.
