Networking pains

Posted by: | June 26, 2011 | No Comment |

Last week my wireless router decided that it had enough and wasn’t going to work any more. This was annoying because I was due to give a user group presentation that night.

I got a new router up and working but today discovered that connectivity from my Hyper-V environment wasn’t working. With the previous router I’d configured bridging between a Hyper-V virtual network and the wireless adapter in my host. That had to be recreated at which point I discovered that the new router didn’t want to support bridging.

I ended up using RRAS and NAT to get the connectivity. The instructions I found here


provide most of what you need.

Remember to set the default gateways and DNS servers properly for it all to work.
