    Anniversary update complete networking cockup with Virtualbox


    I installed the anniversary update on a machine that had Virtualbox (current version 5.0.26) installed. Shortly after the install had completed, the machine lost network connection - networking was still running with no errors indicated but couldn't access Internet or other machines on the same network. Rebooted and the same thing happened - access ok for 20-30 seconds and then no access. Ran ipconfig in a cmd window and found that the ip address needed to access the network was now allocated to the Virtualbox host-only network and what should have been the address for the Virtualbox host-only network was now allocated to the ethernet adapter.

    As the simplest solution I uninstalled Virtualbox, rebooted, and reinstalled Virtualbox. No further problem after that. So be warned if you are installing the update on a machine with Vbox installed.

    Hi there

    @NickJP

    Perhaps the same solution as with VMWARE might work.

    In VMware you can enter Network editor (run as administrator) and then reset all virtual adapters to default --that fixes VMWARE networking problems.

    I'd lost Bridged networking Virtual NIC -- reset to defaults restored it all OK. You shouldn't have to restore the VM software.

    Perhaps there's a similar option in VBOX -- I don't use VBOX so I can't say but on VMWARE it works fine.
