Internet connectivity lost

If I run a virtual machine (tested with Windows 98, 2000 and OpenSolaris) and I perform an action that requires internet connection multiple times the guest always sais there is no internet connectivity anymore, but on my host (vista) I still have access to the internet. This results in several problems: 1: I cannot update in OpenSolaris, because it suddenly (most of the time after about 1-3 seconds) stops downloading because it doesn't have any more connection to the internet. 2: On Windows 98 and 2000 I run a program that pings google every 0.5 second to check if there is still a connection to the internet. The first (few) pings go OK but after 1-3 seconds all pings result in 'false' (no connection).
So for some reason VirtualBox stops the connection if it takes a little bit longer than 'normal' (loading pages in browsers goes OK, but a longer during (downloading) or a repeating (pinging the same server continuesly) is stopped after a short while)
