Virtual Box networking detected, not working

I've had several people ask me if networking was supported under Virtual Box's emulation, including one GSOC student.
I am testing Virtual Box 1.6.4 on OSX with Haiku hrev26917. I was excited to see some patches made against the RealTek network driver, and it seems Virtual Box emulated a RealTek card in 1.5.? but now they emulate four different cards see Screenshot 2
PCnet-PCI II (Am79C970A) PCnet-Fast III (Am79C793) Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop (82540EM) Intel PRO/1000 T Server (82543GC)
When the first two cards are chosen, Haiku will fall back and detect the Vlance driver (using Senryu to test).
When the Intel cards are chosen, they will be detected.
Network preferences shows the same results for acquiring the network address with DHCP (kind of wonky)... See shots 1 & 3.
If you try static IP using you network info, networking also fails...
