    Default No connections in VBox

    I've lost my network connections in all of my VirtualBox guests this morning. I haven't made any changes in the VBox settings or on the host machine, and the connections are fine on the host. Anybody know what would cause this?

    Hi
    Kernel update today, have you auto updated and rebooted?

    No, not yet. I usually wait a few days. If there had been change in the kernel, I wouldn't even be able to launch the guest without reloading the modules.

    Hi
    Which steps... left to vbox, right to vmware? I use the one to the
    right though, as always with workstation 6.5, just running vmware as
    root user rebuilds everything (Liked vmware because I can use
    multiple monitors )

    In vbox, isn't it vbox-setup or something like that?

    I think the best way to fix VB after a kernel upgrade is:
    Code:
     sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
