Hyper-V and Networking – Part 3: IP Routing
In the previous post, we dug into VLANs, which are a layer 2 concept in the ISO model. In this piece, we’re going to step up into layer 3 and look at IP address and routing and how they work with Hyper-V.

How IP Interacts with Ethernet, Part 1
As you recall from our first post on this series, each layer works with the layers immediately above and immediately below to package the transmission on the way down or unpackage it on the way up. For a TCP/IP packet to be able to participate on an Ethernet network, it needs to be placed into an Ethernet frame. Once that happens, its “TCP/IP-ness” is masked from Ethernet. The frame then moves according to MAC addresses. This is helpful to understand for this post, as it is very similar to the way that TCP/IP frames move in a TCP/IP network. Let’s start with a crude visualization:
