#3442 closed bug (invalid)

Virturalbox Network adapters do not appear in Network Preferences

When running Haiku (revision 29155) in VirtualBox 2.10 and 2.12, running on Mac OS X and in Fedora 9, neither NAT nor Host network adapters appear in Network Preferences, and networking, such as internet access, does not work, appearing as if there is no network connection at all.

How to reproduce: Take the raw hdd image, and convert to VirtualBox VDI format using VBoxManage. Create a new VM in VirtualBox for Haiku. Setup NAT or Host networking for the VM. Start the VM, and observe lack of networking.

I would speculate that it would be caused by Haiku not having drivers for the virtual network adapters VirtualBox is providing.

It appears as though it is just the PCnet-FAST III (Am79C973) adapter that doesn't work. The Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop (82540EM) adapter type works. This further suggests a driver issue.

There just is no driver for this hardware. I'm closing this bug as invalid, I don't think we really need this driver anymore.
