I have a windows 10 laptop with hyper v enabled. I want to be able to have the virtual machine access the host as I am trying to restore an old laptop. I have set up Microsoft loop back network interface but that really didn't help me so I think that's just complicating things.

I have a bridged network pointing to my wifi card. When I look at the IP addresses they are the same.

What I want is two different IP addresses.

With the limited information that was provided in the question and also in comments

Here's what we know

  • you have a Windows Host with IP as
  • you have a unix host with same ip
  • you have bridged networking

Regarding your question What I want is two different IP addresses.

go inside your Unix host and update the IP address, change it to or whatever you want.

It's hard to know with limited information, maybe your problem could be that you are using the same mac address for both windows and unix, so use a unique mac address and then your DHCP might assign unique ip address.


It seems that your wireless adapter isn't attached/bridged properly as a virtual switch, otherwise you won't see Ethernet 2 from ipconfig but vEthernet (Bridged):

Try to remove the switch and attach again to see if it changes.
