    So it appears that regardless of whether the default switch is bound to the Ethernet card or the Wireless, I get no internet unless I manually turn on and connect the host to wireless.

    With that in mind, can anyone help me configure Hyper-V to use my default NIC and have internet/network access? I can't believe that I'll have to run Hyper-V with wireless only. Once it's installed on my host, I have no wired network access. I've read through this and several other tutorials on Hyper-V here, and their respective threads looking for some clue about what I may be doing wrong, and frankly....? I can't spot it.

    Sadly, I'm having the opposite problem, I don't have a NIC in my laptop, only WiFi, and I can't get the internet work in the VM.

    Actually, after checking on the 'waiting to connect' window after several minutes, it did actually connect to a website, but it takes about 2 mintues to happen, which makes it basically useless.

    Apologies for coming late to the party. Great host; great nibbles; great conversation. I'm just worried that all the other guests may have gone home by now.

    My interest is primarily in getting a Windows XP system that will run a specific piece of long-defunct commercial software. I now have such a working system. Many thanks to Kari for the excellent tutorials and to various contributors for the subsequent commentary.

    However, before I commit to my solution, there are a few loose ends that I don't yet understand, or feel confident in tackling. Is anyone out there still listening - and, more to the point, interested?

    Hi Kari, many thanks for the prompt reply. By way of background, mine is a home office installation, rather than an enterprise, so Hyper-V may not be the best solution for my requirement: to get a piece of commercial software originally written for Windows 3.1, and last updated for Windows 98, to run on Windows 10. It currently runs in Windows XP mode on Windows 7.

    I have an XP virtual machine running under Hyper-V on W10, thanks to your tutorial. This includes internet access, printing and Remote Desktop Connection - though from another computer rather than the Windows 10 host. My current uncertainties are:

    1) Do I need to do anything about Integration Services?

    2) Can I get the same direct access from the Start Menu to my XP application, that I get with W7 XP Mode?

    3) Although I can get Internet access (via Firefox 52 esr), I don't need it for this application, and it is a security exposure. Nor do I need direct access to any data on the host W10 system, or any other VMs. However, I would like to have access to my network storage devices and printers. I'm currently using an External Virtual Switch. But I'd like to close the security loophole of giving external network access to the XP system that this might create. The machine on which I eventually plan to use Hyper-V has both Ethernet and WiFi connections. So one possibility might be to use one of them for the XP system and the other for everything else on that machine. I could then use my router firewall to block all internet traffic on the former. Can you see any problem with this, or suggest any better alternative?

    4) Finally, the more I've gone into this, the more I'm certain that my requirement is - understandably - some way from the design point of Hyper-V. It seems quite possible that future updates to Windows 10/Hyper-V might undermine this approach. Would I even be better off running Windows XP Mode under Windows 7 under Hyper-V - assuming that's possible?

    Once again, thanks for a superb set of tutorials.
