    Windows 8 Hyper-V-How to configure network to work in Linux Mint Guest

    Hello EightForums administrators and other members

    Today, I installed Linux Mint 13 to try some appliactions, programs and other good things.
    I downloaded it normally , followed guide from this forum and after installing it I don't have network connection.

    I tried with all type of network switches and activated Legacy Network Adapter but it don't work (I configured in network adapter for ex. External Network 1 , I want to say it's not say : Not Connected in VM Settings).

    When I turn it Linux Mint says : Disconnected - you are now offline.

    How to configure network and the Internet to work with Linux Mint VM ?

    Thanks in advance and please answer soon.

    I'm new to Hyper-V myself but I think there are 2 guides you should follow:
    Hyper-V Create Linux Virtual Machine in Windows 8

    How to use (vista example):
    Hyper-V - How to Use in Windows 8

    And there is someone that manages to add network to Vista so maybe you can apply that to LMDE.

    Good luck

    Hi Everyone,

    i have a question in virtualizing Linux under Windows 8.1 Enterprise Hyper-V. I Have read the Best Practise for running Linux on hyper-V but i have with every distribution i install on hyper-v problems with my network connection. The strange thing is, that i got an address from my DHCP server, but i cannot ping any website or something else. Even my internal router is not pingable.

    I have no special rules in my Firewall, and i cannot ping the linux machine from any host in my Network.

    Does anyone has the same issue?

    Thx for help

    Greetings doomking ;-)
