I installed Windows 7 on Friday last week and everything went quite well. I was surprised when I set up a public network that it connected to the internet through my speedstream ethernet modem, all without the Internet Service Providers disc. All seemed to be well and I was able to connect fine over the whole weekend so I did not bother to install the Internet Service Providers disc as you would normally.
This morning I tried to connect and I have two problems the worst part is the modem is no longer showing an Internet green light. So the network cannot connect. I tried to then install the ISP's disc but it still has no internet light showing to be able to complete the setup.
The second problem is an Unknown network has seemed to apear all of it's own accord as well. I'm not sure what this is, could it be the modem?
I'm going to ring my ISP tonight to check my intenet connection, but could there be a reason on the Windows 7 side to these problems?
