NowTV blocks internet access on HyperV virtual machines

I have a laptop with Cisco VPN installed, which allows me to do my job.


I also have Microsoft Hyper-V installed, with a couple of virtual machines. These are using the default switch networking details.


When I am connected to my home broadband (either via WiFi or Ethernet, both tested) the virtual machines have no internet connectivity whatsoever.


When I took my laptop to a friend's house to do work, I was able to get internet connectivity on my virtual machines. Furthermore, I also tried with my phone as a hotspot and my virtual machines had internet access then too.


So I have concluded it must be the NowTV Broadband settings that are blocking the traffic from the virtual machines. I have checked my account settings but cannot find anything obvious.


I also do not have Broadband Buddy enabled.
