Windows 7: Cant identify network or share internet.

05 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Cant identify network or share internet.

Hi All,

I have been trying to fix this problem for a long time and just cannot seem to work it out.
My computer has and onboard PCIe network card and another PCI network card. I have connected my cable modem to the PCI network card using ethernet cable and have the internet on my computer working fine.
This computer then connects to the other computers in my network using a hub, but it keeps putting this connection as a public network and wont share the internet to the rest of my machines even though i have the computers on the same workgroup and sharing enabled.

Does anyone have any idea what could be going on? Im running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit if that helps.
