Hi Guys

Bought a new computer for Hyper V. Everything is working fine except for when adding an external network. The option is grayed out. The other two options are available though, internal and private networks. I have installed two wireless NICS as well, but for the time being, Im not to sure what way they need to be set up.

I have one nic connected to the internet on the server that has Hyper V installed (Vituralised Server). The other nic is just randomly there. Maybe this is the problem. Both nics are installed correctly, but the option for a external network is not available. I need it to create a base virtual machine.

p.s. This is a home project, Im a full time student and I bought this machine to practice on, as virtual PC is wick. :)

Don't worry guys, I worked it out. Hyper V does not support wireless connections. I have two wireless NICS and no ethernet, as I rely on a router. :thumbup2:
