Ticket #11259 (closed defect: duplicate)
VirtualBox Host-Only does not report itself as a virtual adapter on Windows 7
|Reported by:||Kiran Kashalkar||Owned by:|
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.
