Sorry I can't add more technical information but here's what I do know that works.

Router: Verizon MI424WR (FIOS)

Wifi card: built in AirPort Extreme
Firmware Version: Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 (5.106.98.100.22)

Host: iMac 13,2 - OSX 10.9.2
VirtualBox 4.3.10
VMs all working with NAT or Bridged Wi-Fi (Airport)

the manual states, "On Macintosh hosts... Currently, VirtualBox supports only IPv4 over AirPort.". Mine seems to work despite having IPx6 enabled although some people still can't use Bridged networking with Macs.

edit: I forgot to mention all VMs work when using an Apple Time Capsule when it is connected by an Ethernet cable to the above mentioned router..

Router
  • Model: BT HomeHub 3
  • Security: WPA/WPA2 personal.
WiFi card
  • AirPort Extreme (0x14E4, 0x112)
  • Firmware Version: Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 (6.30.223.154.63)
  • Supported PHY Modes: 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac
Host
  • Apple Retina MacBook Pro 13", Oct 2013

  • 4.3.10
Results
  • Generally ok but sometimes takes 20-30 seconds to get an ip address

Note, at work I couldn't get a bridged DHCP ip address, that was a router/dhcp server issue (not sure what kind of router). For whatever reason there wasn't a response to the IP address request but I didn't have any problem at home.

20-30 seconds seems like a very long time to get an IP address.

Router/AP WiFi:
Manufacturer: NetGear
Router/AP model: WNDR4500
Firmware name:
Firmware version: V1.0.1.46_1.0.76
Operation mode: Access Point (AP)

WiFi Card:
Manufacturer: Broadcom
Card model: Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter (closest could find)
Driver name/provider: Broadcom
Driver version: 6.30.223.221

Host OS: Windows 8.1 Pro
VBox version(s): 5.1.30, 5.1.32, 5.2.6
Bridged adapter

Results:
In bound TCP connection fails. Guest responds with SYN ACK. The SYN ACK is seen on host WiFi Interface, but doesn't make it to the client.
Out bound TCP/UDP works.
In and out bound ICMP works.

UPDATE:
Actually this works. Just confirmed that the guest OS is sending SYN ACK response to the client IP address but at the default gateway MAC address. Works on a different system that sends SYN ACK response to the client MAC address.
