Windows 7: Cannot Locate Local Connection

Windows 7
Cannot Locate Local Connection

I'm using Windows 7 RC and I want to route my wireless internet through my laptop and to my 360 using a cable. I've done this successfully with Vista, but hit a roadblock with Windows 7. Basically my 360 cannot be detected. I open up my internet connections and try to get to sharing in the properties, but there is no sharing tab as there should be. Any help would be great.

Are you using a router to connect your 360 to your computer? Or just a crossover cable?

Dear all, I made a few stupid mistakes when installing Win7 beta (build 7000). namely, the file was downloaded from windows and saved with the filename called default. No image burner would recognise it as such so what I did I "uncompressed" it and then I got a setup file which I used to install...
