Network connection blinking when not connected

Reported by: dannys9 Owned by:
Priority: major Component: network
Version: VirtualBox 1.5.6 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: other

Description

Host: Windows Vista Home Premium
Host Network: VirtualBox Hostinterface and host's LAN connections are bridged
Guest: Windows XP Home Edition SP2, clean install
Guest Network: configured as host interface, using the PCnet FAST III adapter
VBox 1.5.6, Guest Additions 1.5.6 installed

When I disconnect the guest's network cable, the network connection is "blinking" (i.e. connected - not connected - connected...). It doesn't matter if I start disconnected or if I disconnect the cable while the vm is running.

The session log is attached (cable disconnected all the time).

Some time ago we fixed a bug where the network device was able to receive network packets despite the fact that the network cable was disconnected. Try the upcoming release 3.1.0 when available.
