Hyper-v guest machine internet can only access google.

Hello,
I have a windows 2008 R2 server running hyper-v with a windows 7 machine installed. The problem is that the guest windows 7 machine does not connect to the internet properly. It says it is connected to the internet, but the only website I can access is the google homepage and gmail. I have exhausted my options and even reinstalled the virtual machine. The same problem still exists. The Ip and adapter configurations seem to be correct. Please help!

Can it ping by ip address?

What do you see when you do "ping www.yahoo.com?

Does it resolving the name to IP address?

Also try ping 4.2.2.2

Thanks for your reply.
It resolves the name to an IP address, I can ping yahoo.com and 4.2.2.2 both with 0% loss.

Since you are able to ping, is there web-filtering enabled on your network?

Also try disabling firewall on the host and the guest vm.

I disabled the firewall on the vm, it was already disabled on the host pc. Still the same result.
We currently use Opendns for web-filtering.

can you allow guest pc IP to any and see what happens?

I am not quite sure how to do that. Could you explain how?

InfamusCommented:
I'm not familiar with OpenDNS Web-filtering.

But you are able to ping any websites from your Win7 vm, right?

AccountantsTechAuthor Commented:
That is correct.

And we haven't had any problems with opendns before.

InfamusCommented:
if you can ping the websites and it is resolving the IP, then I think it's the webfilter that is blocking the access.  

I'm not sure how you setup your filtering (by user group or by IP) but you will need to allow on the webfiltering.

Ok, I will see if I can figure out the opendns.

nslookup google.com and nslookup yahoo.com

then nslookup google.com 8.8.8.8, also with yahoo

you might also have an issue with your browser - try a different one.

Hi guys, I finally was able to get back to this issue. It turns out that the network adapter on the server was the problem. After a re-install of the main NIC, the problem was resolved. Now everything functions normally. Thanks for all your help. I appreciate it.
