Hyper-V: Virtual extern network with only one physical NIC

I've got one physical NIC.
I installed Hyper-V-Server and the driver for the NIC.
I connected via MMC-Snapin and configured an external virtual network bound to the physical NIC.
Now this NIC is bound to the Virtual Switch Protocol and I'can't access the Server anymore.

As far as I understand it, there should be something as a driver for the host to create also a virtual NIC to connect to this virtual network.

Is there such a thing or is there another solution?

(Yes I know, that I can solve the problem with a second NIC, but I would like to know if there is a 'one-NIC-solution')

Set the IP address that you want for the server on the new external network connection that was created. You should be able to access it after doing that.
