Setting up a network adapter on a VM on Hyper-V

I have a running host with Windows 2008 R2 with one VM and for network adapter I have selected  the Virtual Network that I configured. It all works fine

Now I want to do the same with a Windows 2012 host but I can't get it to work. I have created the Virtual Network but the one VM I have running on it does not connect to the network

What does the VM do? Error messages? Ipconfig? What worked in 2008 still works in 2012. There were new features added, but not any drastic changes in existing functionality. So you have a misconfiguration somewhere.

first you need to setup the virtual switch
now in the virtual machine you setup the network to use the switch
Virtual Switch ManagerVirtual Machine settings
External -- to the world
Private - only the vms on this machine
Internal = vm's on this machine and the host.

if you have two NICs and you are trying to use them for each VM separately so you have to create TWO Virtual Switches.

but if you have one NIC and you already created a Virtual Switch then Ensure its type is not set as Internal, if it is on internal so change it to External and then you have to select that virtual switch in the settings of each VM.

That is exactly what I have done. I have two NIC's but I have one disabled.

Have you properly configured your switchex and routers for VLANs? You have thatbchecked, but have never mentioned that as part of your topology.
