Lost Wi-fi Bridged Mode on 6.0.x update

Postby lardois » 29. Jan 2019, 21:53

Hi,
I've been using Win10 guest with MB Pro 2015 and 2018 models for couple of years now. With both of them it has been possible to use Wi-fi adapter in Bridged Mode. This has been very important feature for me - in fact it has been more flexible to work with VirtualBox & Mac Host & Win Guest combination than to do similar things with native Win10 laptop.

Updated today 5.2.24 -> 6.0.4 and Bridged Mode w/ Wi-Fi broke down :x Tried to revert back to 5.2.6 (uninstalled 6.0.4 first) but it did not work anymore either. I remember not doing anything (updating os, etc.) on host or guest side which might have caused this.

- could it be so that Uninstall script does not uninstall everything? Would there be some component that could be removed & reinstalled manually to fix this?
- could it be so that this would have broken in 5.2.24->5.2.26? So I would revert back to 5.2.24, not 5.2.26, to get it working again?
- any ideas how to get it working again in 6.0.x? (would be happy to run the latest version)

E: more information. With Bridged Mode
- I'm able to get proper IP for host from router with DHCP
- I can see guest IP on arp scan from host
- I can't ping anything (router, etc) from guest
- I can't ping guest from host or lan
