    No Network connection Window 7 Pro guest under Hyper V


    I have setup Hyper V on my Windows 8.1 laptop, the guest OS is Window 7 Pro. I have followed the eightforum how to

    Hyper-V Virtual Switch Manager

    But still cannot get a connection.

    The network icon appear on the win7 taskbar with the yellow exclamation mark on it. The Laptop is connecting via ethernet cable and gets its IP via DHCP. I have set the virtaul adapter on the win7 guest to dhcp and static but still no connection. I have setup up the virtaul switch on Hyper V.

    Can anybody give me any pointers please.

    I am asking you to do quite a lot, take a bunch of screenshots and post them here, but it's only to get as much information as possible in order to possibly find the reason for your issue.

    Please post screenshots showing the following Windows dialogs and settings, my example screenshots show exactly what I am asking for (click screenshots to enlarge):

    - From the Windows 7 virtual machine, the Network and Sharing Center, Ethernet Status and Network Connection Details:

    - The same as above from the host PC

    - The Windows 7 virtual machine Settings dialog with the Network Adapter selected on the left pane:

    Click image for larger version

    - The Hyper-V Virtual Switch Manager with the active virtual switch used by Windows 7 vm selected on the left pane:

    Post these and we'll go from that .

    In case you need help in making and posting the screenshots, see these tutorials:

    OK, one thing clear is that the Windows 7 vm is not at all connected. This is most probably because you have enabled the virtual LAN identification.

    Disable it in vm settings, I've highlighted the checkbox in your screenshot you should unselect:

    Try that and come back to tell how it went.

    It worked


    Found this post through google

    @Kari Thanks for the solution, it was indeed that checkbox which was not letting the host and guest talk.
