Unidentified Network

Wanted XP but had to go with Windows 7!

Unidentified Network - No Network Access.

This machine needs to run on a private network only, NO DHCP, NO DNS, Fixed IP with another device on the network that has a builtin web-Server with fixed IP.

This configuration works on any XP machine I have used.

Have tried multiple setup configs with no success.

HELP!!!
