What router do you have?
Also verify that your Network Location is set to Home or Work and not Public or Unidentified.

If you look at Chromecast, do you see the LED blinking white sometimes?
If so, that means it has lost connection to your router. Try the HDMI extender cable or reposition Chromecast and/or router so it has better signal strength.

It's possible that there are some leftovers remaining from Virtualbox's network filters and virtual adapter.

Some third-party antivirus "suites" install a firewall component that can block traffic that it seems suspicious too.
