Version: VirtualBox 2.0.2 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Solaris


I successfully use Host Interface networking with my wired Ethernet interface. However, when switching to the wireless interface, the guest fails to start with:

Failed to open/create the internal network 'HostInterfaceNetworking-ath0 - Ethernet
VBox status code: -3700 (VERR_SUPDRV_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND).

Result Code: 
NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
IConsole {d5a1cbda-f5d7-4824-9afe-d640c94c7dcf}

This error occurs with all of my guests (Windows XP, Ubuntu and OpenSolaris). A log file from WindowsXP is attached. Please let me know what other information I can provide for you.

Using wireless is not supported on Solaris hosts for technical reasons, but you shouldn't be seeing the component not found error in this case. It appears the filter module was not restored properly on your system's boot archive due to a abnormal reboot.

So you must use your wired interface for now, to fix this as root do: rem_drv vboxflt add_drv vboxflt

then run VBox as usual.

Sorry, that should have been:

rem_drv vboxflt
add_drv vboxflt

I suppose the netfilter is now loaded correctly.
