I am trying to get a hyper-v windows 8 configuration set-up with my laptop that all hyper-v machines use a internal virtual switch; that I can elect to have it share the internet on any internet connection I can get on the laptop.
All the machines use 192.168.137.1 as the gateway for my laptop host and I enumerate them like 192.168.137.5 and .10 so on.
I can follow these articles for enabling internet connection sharing on the WiFi and Serria Wireless 3G modem connection for my virtaul internal switch.
But I can't see to make a on-board lan host the internet connection sharing for my virtual machines using the internal shared switch!!!
I dont see a reason to use anyhting but internal virtual swtich with a vm on windows 8 laptop as I am on the move from coffee shop to the board room etc...

Did you receive any error message or error log when you create Internet connection sharing ICS in Windows 8?
With ICS, users can share a public Internet connection with a private home or small business network. In an ICS network, a single computer is chosen to be the ICS host. The ICS host has at least two network adapters: one connected to the Internet and one or more connected to the private network. All Internet-destined traffic flows through the ICS host. ICS uses Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) to assign private IP addresses on the network, and it uses Network Address Translation (NAT) to allow multiple computers on the private network to connect to the public network through the ICS host.
For your scenario, I think Network Bridge is more appropriate, Network Bridge forwards traffic among the multiple LAN segments, making them appear to be a single IP subnet.
Select the on board physical NIC and your virtual internet switch and create a Network bridge.
