Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
I have 2 USB wireless network cards that I try to work with Windows 7 or Windows Vista as guest on VirtualBox. The host is Windows XP/SP2.
When I plug the USB wireless network card, the guest Windows Vista detected the wireless card correctly and installed the right driver. But when it should start to work with the wireless card, it completely freezes, without any mouse/keyboard response. When I unplug the device, guest Windows OS returns back to work normally. I tried to plug/unplug the wireless card multiple times, and it always the same - When the USB device is plugged, the guest OS hangs. I tried to use other USB devices (Bluetooth dongles, USB flash drives, and so on) and they worked completely fine. The problem is only with my wireless network cards.
I have the problem with the following wireless cards: TP-Link TL-WN620G 3Com 3CRUSB10075
I get the same problem for both Windows Vista and Windows 7 as guest.
