Hello I want to know  your opinion about this:

I have a computer with 2008 R2 running hyper V.

I just installed a virtual Windows 2008 R2 but Windows update fails. this virtual NIC is connected to a Zywall Firewall. I can access Internet normally.

 The Server are recently installed and clean of another software, the firewall are down. I performed all the processes here recommended.

I changed the Zywall Firewall for another Firewall ("ovislink") of course the Firewall features are disabled.

The physical Nic is a Ethernet Gigabit DGE-528T, I have changed to a Realtek RTL8168B/8111B(NDIS 6.20) and now are updating correctly.

Is this frequently? I have to configure some NIC's feature? I'm surprised because only fails the windows update.

Could be drivers issue or MTU size.  Have you tried updated drivers from D-Link site?
