I have instaled Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit on my new computer. (Dual boot with XP). On my old computer there was installed XP... so the problem is:
When i tryed to share Internet connection Windows 7 gave me an error: "Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration
but files were shared and i could transfer files from one computer to the other... (only Internet didnt work)...
So i got back to win XP and tried to share connection ( XP vs XP ) and it worked great...
Then i thought: maybe windows 7 and windows XP cant share internet connection... and i installed windows 7 on the old computer (Windows 7 vs Windows 7)...
But then both computers came up with the same error ("Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration).
I tried winXP on the new comp and windows 7 on the old... and it worked great!!!
I figured out thet something is wrong with windows 7 on my new computer and i did a clean installation 3 times and the same error came up...
I tried all this things and nothing worked:
2)Install latest drivers
for my NIC
3)Roll back the drivers
4)cmd -> ipconfig /refresh /release
5)Disabled ip v6
6) netsh winsock reset catalog
7)tried to manually enter IP
8)tried automatic IP
