comment Virtual Network using Hyper-V
@harrymc: He said that DNS is working for internal requests, but the domain members do not have internet access once they are sending DNS requests to the internal DNS server. This is exactly what would happen when the DNS server is not forwarding unresolved requests to an external internet DNS server.

comment Virtual Network using Hyper-V
@Dave: Every machine in the domain needs to send its DNS queries to the DNS server on your network, and the DNS server needs to forward any unresolved queries (any request not to domain machines) to external DNS servers. The issue has nothing to do with virtualisation at all.

comment Virtual Network using Hyper-V
This appears to be a DNS issue, which the OP can easily check by trying to reach a website using an IP address rather than a domain address. eg. 209.85.231.104

@tombull89: I thought that table was more informative than the MS one, which leaves out Starter, Home Basic and Enterprise. windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows7/products/compare

comment Can anyone recommend a cheat sheet for the Windows Command Prompt?
I think it would be better to get used to typing 'command /?' instead, as that also works with non-default command line programs. 'command -h' is common with linux ported programs.

I've found the forum there also very good, for help on more complex commands and scripting.
