    Hyper-v virtual switch breaks my network


    Iím not entirely sure if this should be in networking section. Sorry if this is wrong section.

    First little background. I have Raspberry Pi running Kodi. I also have Windows 10 computer with TV tuner card. I can watch TV on Kodi over the network as the Windows 10 machine is running a PVR server software.

    Recently I wanted to try Hyper-v so I enabled it and created a virtual machine and an external virtual switch. This worked great and the VM ran very well. Then I wanted to watch TV on Kodi. Once I started it I got many errors stating that it could not connect to the PVR server on the Windows 10 machine.

    Then I deleted the VM and virtual switch and disabled Hyper-v. Now TV on Kodi works again.

    I think that the virtual switch somehow breaks the connection and TV streaming wonít work anymore. What could be the reason for this?

    this is the correct forum. I also have issues since installing Hyper-V / the virtual switch. E. g. my WiFi Monitoring app isn't able to show the current WiFi connection, quality and speed anymore.
    Certainly the experts here can lighten this up.

    Since version 1709 (Fall Creators Update) you do not have to create external switches to get Hyper-V virtual machines connected to Internet. If you are OK with using NAT networking, forget external switches; set up Hyper-V and use the new Default Switch when setting up new virtual machines:

    I haven't installed Creators Update yet. I'll install it and try again.

    Kari, will we be able to also remove the Virtual Switch for vms we created before the upgrade? I ask as you said we can configure this when creating new virtual machines.
    I will upgrade to FCU then asap.

    Thanks a lot for your as always great support!

    Just open settings for any existing VM and change switch:
