HyperV - randomly timeout

I have this strange problem.

On 1 VM - i'm able to ping all other machines - no timeout
If I ping the VM from other machines - approx 20% timeout.

All other VMs are working fine - same Network setup

Any ideas?

Some questions:
a. Does the VM use a "Legacy Network Adapter" or a "Network Adapter"?
b. Are the Integration Services installed on the VM?
Thank you.

If they are both Windows, is the firewall off?
