Hyper-v guests cannot connect to internet

Experts,

I am running Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V and having issues with my VMs accessing the internet using the default network adapters. The only way they can access the internet if I change the adapter to legacy on the VM.

- The server running hyper-v is an HP ML350 G5, 2 X 2.6ghz intel procs, 6 X 1TB drives, 3 X Physical NICs, 16GB RAM
- This happens with multiple VMs that are running various OS's (Server 2003, Server 2008).
- DNS is set correctly on the host and VMs, and they can all resolve each others names internally just fine.
- The vNetwork is binded to one of the physical NICs on the server and allows external access

I have a read a couple MS forum posts about this issue, but no real reason or fix to the issue.

do you have guest tools installed on all those virtual servers ? did you try creating a Vlan Segment ?

Guests tools are of course installed on all these VMs. I have not created a VLAN segment but is that necessary?

The issue was the HP NC110T NICs that were installed on the server. Upgrading the drivers from what was installed by default solved the issue.
