Is it possible to still be connected to the internet in a hyper-v Windows 10 container, but not have access to any other device on the host's network?

There are three types of virtual network which can be created: External, Internal and Private. Two of the virtual network types can connect to the external network, but they can all connect to the network where the host is located. They are External and Internal.

External

External virtual networks are used where you want to allow communications between

  • Virtual machine to virtual machine on the same physical server
  • Virtual machine to parent partition (and vice-versa)
  • Virtual machine to externally located servers (and vice-versa)
  • (Optional) Parent partition to externally located servers (and vice-versa)

Internal

Internal virtual networks are used where you want to allow communications between

  • Virtual machine to virtual machine on the same physical server
  • Virtual machine to parent partition (and vice-versa)

Private

Private virtual networks are used where you want to allow communications between

  • Virtual machine to virtual machine on the same physical server
