VBoxNetLwf and EventID 12 on Windows

Reported by: Slimfast Owned by:
Component: network Version: VirtualBox 6.1.22
Keywords: VBoxNetLwf event ID 12 Cc:
Guest type: all Host type: Windows


I am aware that this has been posted already but I cannot find an open ticket! In reference to: I would like to mention that all solutions are not working and the issue is permanent:

Randomly, the VBoxNetLwf driver crashes and causes an event log entry with ID 12. Unfortunately this also causes the WiFi connection to disconnect and it takes some time until Windows recovers internet connection.

I've attached two of these log entries in a file.

Is there anything that can be done about it? Is there already any knowledge when this happens and where (in the source code) this issue occurs? I also read it maybe related to energy management. But I doubt that since it happens for me also when I am actively working on the computer e.g. connected to a remote machine via VPN (which gets disconnected in that case, obviously).

Cross reference to the new VirtualBox forum thread for your issue:  ID Event 12 for VBoxNetLwf.

It's probably better to continue the conversation in the VirtualBox forum thread, including an answer to the following question: What makes you think that the VBoxNetLwf driver crashes?

Al-right, I've continued the conversation in the forum, as requested, here:

I am sorry for the delay.
