VM doesn't get connected to network when it wasn't up during VM startup

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

I use VBox on laptop which isn't always connected to wireless. When guest is started during period when wifi was down it can't ever connect even when the host already has wifi. So that I have to restart the guest in order to get it connected.

Network connectivity of the guest shouldn't depend of the state of network on the host during guest startup.

Did you try to right-click the network icon in the VM settings? Doing cable disconnect t plus cable connect should be sufficient to force the guest to connect to the network.

I have MacOS host. When I click on the network icon on the VM window I only see the menu "Network Adapters ..." showing up. It doesn't change connectivity.

Yes. Open that menu and you will see a dialog where you also can change the network cable connectivity.
