Windows 7: Internet Connection Sharing between 7 and XP


28 Jun 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
 
 

I am having kind of the same problem, except that my host computer is Windows XP SP2 and my client pc is Windows 7 Ultimate 64b. They are in the same workgroup, and I can ping to both ip address and name. Windows 7 shows me 'No internet connection', and indeed I can share files but no internet. The XP machine doesn't give me an error though.
I think the problem lies within ip-addresses and DNS settings, but I don't know much about it. Can somebody help me?

It looks like you have to set the DNS on your XP PC to: your Host Windows 7 PC and your ISP DNS address.....this is done in your TCP/IP of the network adapter.

Ok first in your Windows 7 computer you do this:

Open "Run" (Press Win Key + R), type cmd and press Enter.

Type 'ipconfig'

Now write down your IPv4 Address and Default Gateway of your adapter that has the internet connection. Now, this adapter should be shared, you go to "View network connections" right click your internet connection and press Properties, you go to the Sharing tab and check where it says "Allow other network users to connect ..."

Now you go to your XP machine and open your connections as we did in our windows 7 machine, you enter your connection properties and double click on Internet Protocols (TCP/IP) I think it is, and where it says DNS server just add both of the ip addresses you wrote before, that should do it.

After a long process I have finally figured out how to transfer files from one machine to the next. It's really simple once you know how to. Under Windows 7 there is a feature called Easy Transfer which allows you to do this. I am amazed that no one suggested this before..

Reviving this thread because it is directly relevant to what I'm trying to do.

I moved a computer to another room, and now it can't be plugged into my router (Netgear WNR3500v2). The computer doesn't have a wireless NIC. I have a wireless NIC card on the way for it, but the card will not arrive for about a week.

In the meantime, I have a netbook which of course does have Wi-Fi as well as a wired Ethernet NIC (albeit only 100 Mbit).

Last night, I tried for 2 solid hours to share the netbook's Internet connection with my own Windows 7 desktop, to no avail. The most I could get was recognition that a connection existed, but Windows 7 kept saying "No Internet access" no matter what.

I tried pretty much everything mentioned in this thread, including:
-running Network Wizard on the XP netbook to share its Internet connection
-putting the wired connection between the Win 7 desktop and the Win XP netbook "home" mode (enabling network discovery)
-tried setting both connections to either automatically acquire an address, or manually setting an address. Neither worked.

I'm out of ideas here. Isn't there some way I can have the Windows 7 desktop access the Internet through the netbook's wired NIC?

I have both crossover and conventional Cat5 patch cables. The last time I did ICS, both machines were running Windows XP, and I didn't need the crossover cable. As I understand it, any reasonably-modern NIC can auto-negotiate the connections, so that crossover cables are no longer needed to connect one NIC to another.

Sharing files/folders between the Windows 7 desktop and other machines on my LAN would be nice, but is not required. The point is to get Internet access until the wireless NIC gets here.

Hello,

Forgive me, I'm a bit compu-dumb I think and I'm quite lost... I've followed supernoodles' instructions until "bidged the connection with the internet" but when I try to "Turn on Internet Connection Sharing" I can't see where it must be done or how it can be done, as I can't find the "Sharing" tab in any of the conections (neither in the Intenet one nor the LAN one nor the Bridge).

Thanks in advance...
