Can't get child server to hit the internet through Hyper-V

Last Modified: 2013-11-11
I have a Windows Server 2008 64-bit system with two NICs. The host/parent can hit the internet, but the only child machine, running Windows Server 2003, cannot. I have created two virtual networks, one for each adapter. One is internal, one is external. Both show as LAN connections in the client server (integration services have been successfully installed), but both connections show limited or no connectivity. I have read that internal networks need a child system to serve DHCP, but I would think the external network adapter/LAN should still work. Is DHCP not making it through from the parent to the child? Do I need to bridge the two VLANS? There is also talk of a virtual switch -- is this an actual control panel? I see nothing with that name.
