Ticket #845 (closed defect: duplicate)
Starting VirtualBox breaks host networking

Just by starting VirtualBox, without running any virtual machine, my wireless network adapter stops working.
If I run ipconfig/all, everything looks exactly the same but the interface is no longer working.
I can work around it by resetting the interface with:
netsh interface set interface "Wireless Network Connection" disabled
netsh interface set interface "Wireless Network Connection" enabled
After this network connections will work form both the host and the guest.
I am running Windows Vista Home Premium as the host.
One thing perhaps worth mentioning is that although the wireless adapter is built-in in my notebook, it looks to Windows as a USB adapter.
