Windows 10 Redstone Preview Build 14267: Known Issues
At this time, there’s only one known issue with preview build 14267. If you are using Hyper-V and upgrade to this build with more than one vswitch or have multiple virtual networking adapters (including legacy), you may lose networking connectivity after upgrading.
Hopefully there are two workarounds available to get network connectivity back:
Remove all the virtual network adapters connected to the vswitch, delete the vswitch and recreate it, then reconnect their virtual NIC to the new vswitch.
Admin command prompt, do “netcfg -d” will wipe-out all the vswitch settings so that you can start from scratch.
