Windows Host networking doesnt work => Fixed in 1.6.2

|Version:||VirtualBox 1.6.0||Keywords:||virtualbox 1.6.0 windows host networking issues|
I have two environments on my Dual boot machine 2003 Server 32 bit + Ubuntu 8.04 64bit (2GB RAM, X2 AMD processor)
I have Windows 2003 32bit Host & XP + 2003 server + DSL as clients
I have Ubuntu 8.04 64bit Host & XP + 2003 server + DSL as clients
(I share common images of the above 3 clients & have stored all on Windows partition which Linux can access & write to)
I upgraded from 1.5.6 to 1.6.0 on both the Hosts.
On Linux every thing is OK like before, but on Windows host the Host interface had to be reconfigured so that the clients act as individual computers on a router and they share the ADSL from host ... earlier everything was fine after upgrade and after again configuring the network I cant even ping each other machines let alone go to the net through host, no ping between host & clients or between clients. NAT works fine. (Now if i uninstall 1.6.0 & go back to 1.5.6 I am back to normal, I spent 6 hrs yesterday night) . Think there is a bug in 1.6.0 in Host Networking, anyone else has a problem ?
Note: Have been using VBox for a long time and I know what I am doing (Please don't take it otherwise), but I need serious help.
- Summary changed from Windows Host networking doesnt work in 1.6.0 to Windows Host networking doesnt work => Fixed in 1.6.2
