Windows 10: Can't enable Hyper-V Extensible Virtual Switch in Networking Solved

    Can't enable Hyper-V Extensible Virtual Switch in Networking


    I can find the dialog to enable the Hyper-V Extensible Switch for my network card but when I say OK then it says:

    "Your current selection will also disable the following features:
    Hyper-V Extensible Virtual Switch"

    Yes or No

    Either way the selection becomes unselected.

    May I ask why you would like to enable the Hyper-V Extensible Switch? It is needed only when you have created Hyper-V virtual network switches, which your screenshot clearly shows you have not done. Even then it does not need to be manually enabled, the Hyper-V Virtual Switch Manager does that for you, disabling everything else in your native physical network adapter's properties, only enabling the Hyper-V Extensible Switch.

    Screenshots from my PC showing how the properties are set when an external virtual switch has been correctly set up. Notice that these changes have been automatically made by the Hyper-V Virtual Switch Manager, I have had no need to edit the properties manually.

    The host physical NIC properties, everything else disabled, only the Hyper-V Extensible Switch enabled:

    And the properties of the Hyper-V external virtual switch which at the moment takes care of my network traffic, over the Hyper-V Extensible Switch on my host NIC:

    I read somewhere that this flag needed to get set manually to allow a Hyper-V guest OS to access the Network. I got it done in Hyper-V manager which as you point out takes care of all those flags. Thanks for your help.
