Windows 7: ICS working on XP but not on windows 7

ICS working on XP but not on windows 7


I have 2 pc's.

PC1 has windows 7 and has an internet connection. I am using virtual wifi to broadcast a network and use internet connection sharing. I am using realtek wireless lan utility to enable virtual wifi. (it seems to work the same as enabling it in windows)

PC2 is a laptop and has dualboot Windows 7 and XP.
I am able to connect to PC1's virtual wifi network from both win 7 and win XP however i am only able to connect to the internet from win XP. Is there a setting on windows 7 that i am missing? I cant seem to figure it out.

Thanks in advance.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

This is how i set up ICS....

Should have:

PC2: (Any following PCs you will establish internet to ====>)
Secondary DNS: ( You will get this from your internet.... just CMD and IPCONFIG /all) your active internet connection will show the DNS... make sure they match

that should be it.....
