    Hi Kari,

    Powershell Get-Netadapter shows only 2: -
    Hyper-V Virtual Ethrenet Adapter #2
    Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller.
    There are no unused switches.

    My "error" screen shot is: -

    Hope this helps

    Hi Jimbo.

    I'll trythe VMware on my XPSP3 Hard drive to check if my NIC is the problem so that I can leave Win 8 Hyper-v intact to deal with Kari's suggestions.

    Hope this Hardware Configuration is what you want.

    Hi Jimbo,

    Sorry. I don't know where that came from.
    I'll try again and send it later.

    Hi Jimbo,

    To recap.
    The screen shots of my hardware configuration are below. I opened up some of the devices I think you will want to see.
    I have 8 GB of DDR2 800 RAM. If you need more please let me know.

    I'm going to install a VMware in winXPSP3 on my XP 32 bit hard drive just to test if my Realtek NIC does work In VMware. I'll leave the Hyper-v in win 8 alone to test out Kari suggestions., unless you think there will be a conflict

    Hi Guy's,

    I've created a 32 bit Ubuntu VM on my win XP hard drive using VMware in NAT and it connected to the internet immediately on start up using my one and only onboard NIC Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller.

    I'll now install a second VM on my win 8 hard drive using hyper-v and Ubuntu and see if that connects. If it doesn't then I'll assume the NIC is the cause of the problem. Can't do the second install today but I will let you know what happens when I've completed it.

    Hi Guys,

    I installed Ubuntu in Hyper-v and had the same problem "little or no connectivity" so I'll assume the problem is my NIC.
    Before I buy a new adapter I'll try VMware in windows8 after I switch off Hyper-v. Who Knows, I might prefer VMware after the trouble I've had with Hyper-v.

    Thanks for your help
