Windows 8.1 with Hyper-V external switch – 802.1x will not work

I have Windows 8.1 with installed Hyper-V and virtual machines connected via Hyper-V Switch – External. 802.1x wired authentication is not working in host or in guest machine (computer is not responding to switch requests).
If I will change switch mode to Internal/Private it will start working.

Windows 8.1 with a Hyper-V external switch with 802.1x will not work!!!

From i read that “official” statement from Microsoft is that 802.1x with Hyper-V on Windows 8.1 is not working by design. #Fail Microsoft.
