I have carefully followed the instructions in the first answer, but I still can't get the network adapter to be shared with the host operating system. My symptoms appear to be identical to this question, but a reboot did not fix the issue. Networking works fine for my VMs, and it's connecting to the wireless network, but I cannot get access to the Internet from my host OS.

It appears that this guy is having the same problem, but he hasn't said anything for a few days.

Here is a screenshot of my virtual switch configuration when I have it turned on: Hyper-V virtual switch settings

I would recommend against using a wireless connection with Hyper-V, as it can cause no end of issues when trying to connect to networks.

You could try changing your Hyper-V network to an Internal network:

This appears as a new virtual network adapter in your host:

Then depending on your needs, either enable Internet Connection Sharing on your wireless adapter:

or bridge the new internal adapter and your wireless one (ignore that this screenshot shows two virtual networks):

I'd set this up before, and forgotten about the internal network adapter/sharing option. Thanks for the reminder. –  Ryan Jan 9 '13 at 18:53
