Recovering guest VM (VirtualBox) after network interruption

I have a very cantankerous network device a=that hangs periodically. I can
get it restarted by restarting the netif, but my Mint VM (and probably
others) does not ecover. I have only managed to get it back by reboot.

I searched for an answer, but nothing worked. I suspect that it is on the
host end, but not at all sure of that.

Anything to look at to get things running in a less extreme way? (A new
network interface is a possibility, I suppose, but it has to be a USB
device until the new Intel WiFi driver is stable.
