Hyper-V, virtual switches, intel vs. realtek
I have problems described here and there seems to be no solution.
So my question: Does it make any difference if I would use an intel NIC instead of a realtek one, if the vSwitches are only virtual (no pass-through)?

Can't tell you for sure, but I've used both without issue. Currently using an IBM branded i340-T4. Any severe packet loss that I've experienced were ISP related. But the cards a certainly cheap enough to try. OEM versions from Dell, HP, IBM and others for about $25. Here's a good link to find the OEM equivalents of that chipset and several others. Many on EBay include both height brackets.
