Ticket #20451 (new defect)

Opened 7 months ago

Bridged adapter list is empty (with NDIS5 drivers)

Description

As a workaround for #15060 I tried installing VirtualBox using the old NDIS 5 network drivers, by running the installer with the option -msiparams NETWORKTYPE=NDIS5

After installation, attempting to configure a bridged network interface is impossible because the list of adapters to bridge to is empty (see attached screenshot).

There are no other error messages from VirtualBox about a the failure to enumerate network adapters. It looks like the NDIS5 drivers are active, given...
