windows Home Premium 64 bit

I have no problem networking the two operating systems and sharing folders and printers (use work not home on win7). BUT, the minute I open network and/or network sharing on the windows 7 computer I lose my internetconnection on both computers and have to go through a shut down of the w7 computer and unplug the cable modem and the router and restart everything. (The modem displays an internet connection.) Time Warner Aries Modem
Belkin G router

You can't get to shared folders without going through network. If you do you have to restart everything to get back internet connection.

Enter Network Password: win7 to win7 networking
Yes, yet another question about the "network password" issue with Win7 networking. This has nothing to do with Win7-winxp networking, as most of the questions related to this subject (from google) appear to be. This is an issue of 1 single win7 installation being unable to connect to...
