Hyper-v on laptop (wireless network)

Hi,

I've installed hyper-v on a laptop to play around. Works pretty well but can't establish a network connection while my wireless network is connected.

It seems as if I cannot add a network that's bound to my wireless adaptor also.
I saw a setting in my wireless adaptor "Microsoft virtual network bridge protocol" and activated but still no change. I don't get an ip from my wireless router.

Thanks for your input.

It works flawlesly, except I'm not getting an external ip from my router but from the sharing network 192.168.135 .... I would like one of my router.

HyperV server is connected to the wireless network?
You have a DHCP server in your network? if no dhcp you will not get any IP.

there are three different types of virtual networks that you can create.

Your first option is to create an external virtual network. Doing so creates a virtual switch through which virtual machines can access your entire network, and even the Internet assuming that you have the necessary infrastructure in place.

One thing that you do need to know about external virtual networks is that they must be bound to a physical network adapter. Additionally, each physical network adapter can only be used for a single virtual network. Therefore, if you are creating a secondary external virtual network then you're going to need a secondary NIC that you can bind the new external virtual network to.

Your next option is to create an internal virtual switch. An internal virtual switch is not capable of accessing the yarn that, or even your private network as a whole. It serves primarily as a mechanism for allowing communications between the virtual machines that are hosted on the server. Additionally, an internal virtual network can facilitate communications between the host operating system and the guest operating systems that are running on it.

Your third option is to create a private virtual network. A private virtual network can only be used to facilitate communications between the virtual machines that are hosted on the current server. Private virtual networks can not access the outside world, nor can they access the host operating system.

This is your problem. Does your server show a wLAN or just a LAN connection?
I doubt that the server will have drivers for your wireless NIC.
