Hello, I have been working trying to set up a Hyper-V test lab that I can connect to wireless networks. I finally was able to connect my DC to have internet access. I was then going to see if I could connect one of my test computers to the network using the same External Virtual Switch and configuration as the DC, it says Default Gateway is not available. the IP configuration is as follows:

192.168.2.11

255.255.255.0

192.168.2.1

My goal is to be able to get 2 Test PC's talking to the DC that is on the internet. I was just trying to test the theory of using different default gateways and networks when I need to. Let me know if anyone can help and what additional information we need. Thanks.

    In both cases the router (192.168.123.1) is not reachable. Might try deleting / recreating the external vSwitch.

    Make sure the domain controller and problem member both have the static ip address of DC listed for DNS and no others such as router or public DNS.
