I have a problem with the internet connection sharing in Windows 7 although it worked back then with vista.
Ok, here is the setup:
Computer1 (c1) is connected through a router to the internet, this is working perfectly, no problems here.
Computer2 (c2) is connected to c1 through a LAN cable.
In Vista (and before in XP) I was able to share the internet connection in c1 with c2.
Here is the configuration I tried:
* In c1:
I activated the internet connection sharing (in the network to the router)
For the LAN to c2 I set the IP(4) manually to 192.168.178.2/255.255.255.0
* In c2:
I set the IP(4) also manually to 192.168.178.3
But its not working
Please note that both computers can see each other and even access the shared folders of each other(both not join one homegroup, but this is another problem).
Please help me, since its driving me crazy and I'm starting to thing about going back to Vista!
Thanks in advance!
P.S. I have also tried to set both LANs to retrieve the IPs automatically, with no success...
