    Use Different Network for Hyper VM vs Host

    Is it possible for HyperV to use a different network connection (say wireless) for the VM, while the host machine uses the wired connection? If so, how does one set that up?

    Yes....during the hardware setup of the VM. You simply select what network adapter you want to use.

    It appears I have to create a virtual switch in HyperV and point that to the wireless network adapter. However, I first have to connect the host via wireless in order for the VM to connect. I was hoping I could just connect with the VM to the wireless, and then hardwire the host.

    If the host isn't on wireless, the VM can't be on wireless, either. All network hardware has to "get physical" at some point for it to be usable inside a VM. While I understand your wishes quite well, I also hope you understand why those wishes are doomed without a physical wireless connection being made somewhere down the line...

    Ok, thanks.
