Hyper V VM NIC stopped working correctly.

I setup a Windows 2008 Hyper V Server with only one of the two ethernet NICs connected  and setup a few test VMs. I added memory to the server and accidently plugged in the wrong ethernet port that was default DCHP without knowing. I started the Windows 2008 Sever VM and logged in and notice the NIC lost it's static IP and now DHCP , setup static address and  was ask to delte the old NIC config, and I just clcik OK and proceeded, then notice IP config did a gateway address when it was configured in the IP V4 TCP properties. I checked the Hyper V server virtual NIC and saw I need to move the cable to the Hyper V server NIC with Static IP, but the Windows 2008 Hyper V VM NIC seems to work but I still cannot get the internet browser to work and IPCONFIG still has no gateway address. Any suggestions?

Could you send a "netsh interface ip show config" of Hyper-V Host and of VM as a list of virtual switches (network configuration on Hyper-V Manager) ?

I noticed when I click details on the LAN connection on the VM with the connection problem I see TCP autoconfiguration is enabled with a different IP address than the statice IP I entered.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

the ipconfig is from the host and the VM?

they both have the same network address.

you may have to tear down your virtual iinterfaces on the host and rebuild them.
