I have had this problem with a number of clients over the last months, after a bit of searching i found this

KB Number: KB974909
Title: The network connection of a running Hyper-V virtual machine is lost under heavy outgoing network traffic on a Windows Server 2008 R2-based computer
Description: This affects all guest operating systems.  The fix is applied to the hypervisor and while a reboot is required for installation, no updated need to be applied to the guest operating systems.

If you are seeing child virtual machines on Server 2008 R2 loosing network connections, then give this a try.


Update, there is now an all in one link

Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition (KB2264080)

**Update** Problem now happening on R2 SP1. Link for more info
