I hadn't done anything to the vnic other than create it.
However, after I changed the config to use the "virtio" network interface instead of "e1000" and installed the windows drivers (available from Fedora) the networking is running fine.
I wonder if there's some hidden conflict of emulating an "e1000" interface on a real "e1000" interface (which my system has). In any case, that part is solved, and moral of the story is to try different network interfaces :)
