I quick installed ubuntu on windows 10 hyper-v, it has a default virtual network adapter along with the virtual switch but it doesn't want to connect to the internet.
I know this is old but deserves an answer.
- Go to network adapters and settings
- Right click the adapter that is giving you internet
- Click properties
- Click the tab Sharing
- Check the box allow other network users to connect through this computers internet connection
Doing this will also give your machine a 192.168 address instead of a 172.17
I am assuming, by default, it will not let you connect to the outside world, unless you choose external. I usually create an internal adapter, apply these settings, give it the IP address range I want through powershell. Then give the vm a static IP address.
Hopefully this helps someone.
