A variety of Windows Hosts report failure in getting the Bridged over WiFi to successfully get an IP address. The same setup works fine with any 5.1.x VirtualBox version, even 5.1.30 that was released 2 days before 5.2.0. Reporters have been using any Windows version from Win7 to the latest fast-ring pre-release of Win10.
Guests can be virtually anything, so can be the affected WiFi cards. The only common denominator seems to be a Windows host and VirtualBox 5.2.0.
The VBox.log shows absolutely no signs of anything going wrong. Almost identical logs between successful 5.1.30 runs and failed 5.2.0 runs. I believe that lower level debugging must be enabled, if the developers cannot reproduce the issue (highly unlikely).
