Networking won't recover after router reset

Postby ras » 24. May 2019, 05:53

Whenever my router gets reset, bridged networking on my VirtualBox guests stops working and won't recover until the host is rebooted.

Oddly, when this happens I can still access (including file sharing, pinging, etc) the guests from the host and from other machines on the network, but the guests can't access anything - can't ping the host, or the router, or do anything.

Host is Windows 10 running VirtualBox Version 6.0.8 r130520; guests are various Windows and Linux versions running bridged networking and with the latest Guest Additions installed. All IPs are static.

Is there something I can do to prevent this? Failing that, is there some way to recover the networking function without completely rebooting the host?
