Description

Hi,

using VBox 3.0.4 with Win XP Guest and Intel Pro/1000 T-Serveradapter with NAT:

There's no reaction of the guest system if i connect the virtual network cable via the checkbox, even disconnecting an connecting again - the guest doesn't recognize.

Addendum:

If i restart the guest Windows XP, it connect's to the internet, although the virtual network cable is disconnected. Strange.

Addendum 2:

Changed networkadapter to PCnet-FAST III (NAT) - now works as expected. The state of the virtual network cable (connected, disconnected) is recognized properly.

So maybe just a problem with the Intel-adapter.

For me, issue solved.

Are you 100% sure that you are using VBox 3.0.4? With E1000, this works here as well and we fixed such a problem for E1000 some releases ago.

Totally sure (took a look some seconds ago to get "highest sureness").
Updated from 3.0.2 where the issue appeared too.

It would be useful if you attached the VBox.log of such a session.

We just fixed a bug where the cable was disconnected but the guest was still able to send/receive. But this doesn't sound like this fixed your original problem.

Please retry with 3.2.0, as this release had some network changes.
