Trying to get this working on my Windows 8 Pro machine. I created an External Switch

Assigned the newly available adapter to a Guest machine with Win 2008 os. My host has internet connection. Host can ping Guest, Guest cannot ping Host.

Guest has no internet connection. Pasting the IP of both host and guest.

I had issues similar to this. It seemed to be caused by having other virtualization software (Virtualbox) installed along with Hyper-V. You could check the properties -> sharing tab of the vEthernet adapter and try setting it to share internet. I still had intermittent internet issues with this setup though.

I ended up uninstalling Virtualbox to get Hyper-V working solid.

Thanks removing VirtualBox completely did the trick! –  Perplexed Sep 8 '12 at 21:06

Dont forget to activate the Virtual LAN ID which you can find in the Guest settings of the Hyper-V-Manager!
