Network Interface Issues - After upgrade with Windows 8.1 and VB 4.2.16

I upgraded recently from Win 8 (as the main OS) and VB was working great! Then i upgrade to Win 8.1 and VB stopped working great :(. Yes i realize this points to a Win 8.1 issue, but think there's something goin on with the VB interface drivers, see below
After the upgrade to 8.1, my existing 4.2.14 version stopped working. Wouldn't boot and wouldn't give me the option to bridge the network interface adapted (there was never any interface listed in the bridged drop down). NAT, etc also didn't work for some odd/unexplained reason.
Luckily enough 4.2.16 was release and waddayaknow, it fixed something and i was able to select my NIC for a bridged interface. But then things really fall off the rails, after the upgrade/install of 4.2.16 (i've tried both, upgrade and "clean" install of VB 4.2.16) my internet connection stops working. If i have a ssh/tcp/http connection established, they stay up. but no new connections work. Also on reboot i'm not able to get out to anything and interface says "limitted connectivity" with no IP address.
