VirtualBox 1.6's Network Problem

Just upgrade to 1.6, all guests started but cannot talk to each other. They were connected into a shared "Internal Network" but now seems torn apart. XP cannot get a DHCP IP address from KDC. Even it's configured a static address, it cannot ping KDC.

I'll try to create another Internal Network and put them into this new one, hope this can solve the problem.

Update (2:18pm): Does not work. I finally reinstall version 1.56 and now they are running. I am a little suspect about what the issue really is. Because even after I install 1.56, the IP addresses go wrong once too. Anyway, for 1.56, a simple Repair inside the Windows guests solve all the problem, while in 1.6, I've tried anything I can but never got things right.

I have found similar issues, was deciding on the downgrade path when I found this entry

Same again - Sun have taken a great thing and broken it.

One solution is to change the Host interface driver to Intel (not the default). This means re-configuring the VM (yuk!) but may be OK for some. More details at: http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?p=22657&sid=06cd0d8ca7288ccc5b29794d10e7c2e6
