Virtualbox Upload Speed Slowness Fix

I have been playing around with Virtualbox 1.6 under Ubuntu and find it a great way to run Windows under Ubuntu. One thing that really bugged me was the upload speed inside the Windows guest. Using the default NAT network configuration made it really slow. By switching to a Bridge mode for network card(similar to what vmware does by default) lets the upload run at its normal speed. Also with the bridge you can access the guest through the network from another PC on the network or even the host easier. Follow the instructions under the manual for Virtualbox (reference Page 74)
