I have a home lab Hyper-V installation using a couple of old i7 laptops which works really well, however as laptops only have 1 nic is it possible to  connect a switch to it for more NICs. My issue is I dont understand how I can add more.

I thought I could add a load of vLANs to the switch and then uplink one to the hyper-v server and add multiple vNICs to the server via virtual switch manager on each of th vLANs, but apparently you can only add one external NIC and put it onto the switch where the port is set to the vlan.

Any ideas if this is possible and how to achieve it?
