VirtualBox 5.0.8 causes Wireless Networks to Disappear

Reported by: Master VB Guru Owned by:
Component: network Version: VirtualBox 5.0.8

Guest type: other Host type: Windows


I installed VirtualBox 5.0.8 under Windows 10 Professional (x64), upgrading my system from 5.0.6.

Now, when I reboot, there is a red "X" in my wireless network connections on the login screen.

When I login to my local desktop (Administrator account or user account with admin privileges) and click the Network Settings icon in the system tray, I get the message that there are no wireless networks.

I have to wait 2-3 minutes before they appear. Once they do, then Windows 10 connects to them. Sometimes it takes longer than 2-3 minutes.

I restored my machine to a Windows 10 image I had created prior to installing VirtualBox 5.0.8 and the problem has gone away.
