VirtualBox 3.1.x bridge mode does not work with Intel Atom 330 and RTL8168c card

Description

Host Linux VM: Windows XP

When VB starts and Network card set in Bridge Mode the network does not start and I can not shut down the Windows-XP In addition my keyboard in Linux terminal windows does not respond, only mouse is working (no keyboard) and the only way I can shut down Linux box is to pull the power cord.

I duplicate the VM and it works OK in NAT and Bridge mode with the same router on my other Quad-core machine; but on Intel Atom 330 with RTL8168c network card only NAT mode is working. According to this page: Realtek RTL8169 supports "Promiscuous Mode"  http://developer.novell.com/yes/70604.htm I hope the same direr is in Linux kernel.

SOLVED! The modules in: /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6 I had them in wrong order: I had it: vboxdrv vboxnetadp vboxnetflt

such a simple mistake and it caused such a strange problems, it should be: vboxdrv vboxnetflt vboxnetadp

I presume this is some custom/rare Linux distro.

Please close this bug.
