Bridged Networking Driver breaks host networking

Description

After installing VirtualBox 3.0.10 on my workstation, my computer would have network connectivity after installation. However, after a reboot, my computer was unable to retrieve a DHCP address. Whenever I'd try to repair the connection, it gave me the error, "Failed to query TCP/IP settings of the connection. Cannot proceed." After uninstalling VirtualBox, my computer immediately retrieved a DHCP address and started to behave normally, which led me to dig a bit further.

After a while, I discovered that, if the VirtualBox Bridged Networking Driver was checked on the host NIC when it booted, I wouldn't have network access. However, if I unchecked it, waited for a DHCP address on the host interface, and rechecked it, everything worked normally.

I'm using an HP Compaq dc5750 with a Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet adapter running Windows XP Professional SP3.

Let me know if you need anything else. I (hopefully) attached a screen shot of the error I received.

Replying to DavidPCS: Do you have any custom networking-related software installed? I.e. VPN, firewals, antiviruses, other hypervisors (Virtual PC, VMWare), etc. ?

Also what is the latest VBox version that did not have this issue in your environment?

Sorry about not replying sooner. To answer your questions...

Nothing fancy. I'm using TrendMicro OfficeScan 8.0, no VPN or firewall software (Windows Firewall is even disabled on the GPO level), and no other hypervisors.

3.0.6 was trouble-free. I never tried 3.0.8, so I can't vouch for that.

Good news, everyone - I installed 3.0.12 and the problem was fixed. I'm not sure what caused it in .10, but I'm not complaining.

Thanks!
