Windows 7: Can connect to other PC, but cannot reach internet through it

Can connect to other PC, but cannot reach internet through it

Hi,

I am currently attempting to connect PC1 to the internet through PC2, which does have a connection.

PC1 can see PC2, and copy files from it, but cannot reach the internet.

I have already tried ipconfig /release, ipconfig /renew, ipconfig /flushdns, netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt, netsh winsock reset catalog, disable+enable adapter, set IP addresses manually, set IP addresses automatically, MSFixit 50199, winsockfix, and dropping firewalls. Thus far, nothing has worked.

Ironically, I only want to get to the internet to download Win 8.1, since Win 7 has proven to be so extremely frustrating.

Does anyone have any idea what could enable me to connect, other than reinstalling Win 7 yet again (for the fourth time in only 18 months)?

Hi Unhappy, welcome to the Seven forums.

Have you checked that the Internet connection on PC2 is shared? Tutorial: Internet Connection Sharing - Enable

Hi Kari,

Unfortunately, yes, I have already set ICS. The two computers have worked together in this arrangement before, but refuse to do so now.

Thanks for the thought, though.
