Network adapter crashes Vista 64?

|Version:||VirtualBox 3.0.4||Keywords:||network interface crashes Vista 64|
I installed VirtualBox on a new Vista 64 machine. It runs great, except every so often (usually while in an intensive and long download -- but at other times, seemingly random) it crashes my PC to the BSOD. And sometimes mentions an IRQ problem (which goes by too fast to read). But most of the time, it just crashes. Vista then reboots and wants to know if I want to know the cause of the crash. When I elect "yes," it tells me that the network card in my machine has caused the crash and to update to the latest drivers. However: I have(!) the latest drivers according to Vista. Further, the network card shown in the virtual machine (XP) is not the same as the one shown in the host system.
Incidentally, I had exactly the same problem (and error message) when I first tried Windows VirtualPC 2007 to create and XP machine -- before uninstalling and moving to VirtualBox. Anyone know what's going on here? And, if so, what a fix for the problem might be?
I'd send the logfile, etc., but I forgot to save them before (at least temporarily) uninstalling VirtualBox because it appeared to being crashing Vista even when not actively opened! (And, sure enough, the crashes stopped after I uninstalled it).
