Bridged Network to WLAN not working

|Version:||VirtualBox 3.0.8||Keywords:||bridged network WLAN WiFi|
VB currently 3.0.8 Host: WinXP SP3 32-bit Guests: multiple 64-bit OS: Win 7 RC1, Fedora 11, Ubuntu 9.04 desktop & server Bridged network when associated with wireless host interface (Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN) has intermittent network connectivity (tested by continuous pings on Win 7 and Fedora 11; on Win7 every 11-12 pings are followed by requests timed outs, overall up to 40% packet loss; on Fedora11 up to 80% packet loss. Bridged network when associated with wired host interface (Intel(R) 82566MM Gigabit Network Connection) working properly, no packet loss. NAT interface working properly for both hosts interfaces, wireless and wired. This issue started to occur before VB v3.0.4 and continues in v3.0.8. Originally, on VB 2.2.2 & 2.2.4 this behavior was not observed, no issues observed. Guests do not report or log any errors for Nics. So, I am not sure how and where additionally track this issue. I tried wireshark, but I was not able to find anything. Dmesg or linux logs--nothing either. Other VMs on the same host machine, on VMWare server, Microsoft PC 2007 or server 2005 do not have issues with bridged networking attached to the same WiFi. Host machine by itself has no issues with WiFi either.
