    See pic. Wifi network settings safe after install of OracleVirtualBox?

    Hi All, See pic below. I'm using Windows 10. I installed the latest version of VirtualBox (and the VBox Extension Pack) and restarted. Then my wifi didn't work (had a small red x in the System Tray icon). See pic. I had to set these as my wifi network settings in order to get my wifi working again (see pic for the settings). Are these settings safe? I get my internet using a 3G cellular modem that has built-in wifi. The modem is not connected to any USB port because it provides wifi and has its own separate power. Just want to make sure I'm still safe and have not exposed myself to any attacks. I use Norton Internet Security and it manages the firewall. Thanks!
