Can Hyper-V virtual machines use the host network?

I ran into an issue where I tried to build a virtual machine, but I don't know how to connect the host network. Is this possible? If so, how do you set it up?

    Sure, it's not a problem. When you create a new external vSwitch the internet protocols are removed from the adapter and the Hyper-V Extensible Switch protocol is added turning that physical port into a multi-port virtual switch. Connect your VMs to this vSwitch and use each VM's vEthernet to configure the addressing in the exact same manner as if it were a physical NIC
