Binding Hyper-V with Wireless

If you have ever tried binding your Hyper-V images to use your wireless network connection, well, you simply can’t. What you can do is implement a workaround to your problem and there are three ways you can do it.

  • Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)
  • Routing and Remote Access Service (RRAS)
  • Network Bridge

Personally I’d prefer the ICS and the network bridge method simply because it is easy to configure and should be familiar to most people. To do this, you would first have to create a new virtual network using the Virtual Network Manager. Give it a name (My Internal Connection) and then select Internal only. This will create a new network connection on your host.

If you’d like the ICS method, you simply need to share your wireless connection to your newly created network connection (whatever you named it earlier).

  • Go to Control Panel>Network and Sharing Center>Manage Network Connections.
  • Right-click your wireless connection, select Properties.
  • At the Sharing tab, check the box to select Allow other network user to connect through this computer’s Internet connection.
  • Select the virtual connection you have just created (My Internal Connection) as the home networking connection, then click OK.
  • You might be prompted that the IP address will be set to 192.168.0.1.

Configuring network bridge is simple.

  • In the Network Connections windows select both the network (wireless connection and the virtual connection) connection to bridge.
  • Right-click and then select Bridge Connection.
