NAT malfunction under Windows host

Reported by: il444 Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: network/NAT
Version: VirtualBox 1.6.2 Keywords: NAT, network access, Windows XP
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Windows


Guest (Fedora 9) does not get access to network (NAT is configured for the guest) when host (Windows XP) is connected using WiFi. The guest OS acquires IP address from DHCP yet no packets go through to the outside network. NAT was working fine for several weeks before failing. During the time the host was connected either using Ethernet or WiFi. Eventually only Ethernet was working. The problem was solved by uninstalling VirtualBox, removing '.VirtualBox' folder, and reinstalling the application.

Guest network access (using NAT) stops working when time difference between the guest and the host exceeds approximately two hours.
