Lots of ways to do it of course, this is my way.
Routers are nothing but trouble? What exactly is wrong with a router? I've been doing networking for many years, and I have yet to have any difficulty with a router. QoS, on/off times for MAC addresses, IP reservations (totally eliminating the need for static IPs), port forwarding, a lot less power consumption than an always on PC, the ability to connect non-PC hardware to a network (blu-ray player, Roku player), etc etc etc. Plus, wired and wireless networking and no need to constantly re-create an ad-hoc network.

Just my two cents.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

Tannin, attempting to explain your convoluted method of setting up a network to the OP was definately not in his best interest. I'm fairly certain that the Op is not interested in your fancy, overly complicated and completely outdated third party way of setting up a network in Windows 7.

I'm quite positive he was looking for the tried and true Windows 7 method of setting up a network in Windows 7. Or at least that is the advice you should be giving him here.

I'am also positive that the OP never asked for your opinion about the usefulness of Routers which only served to complicate your advise even further.

Sorry but your explanation and theory's on using routers is beyond archaic.

As you can see the OP had a difficult time following your method mostly because it was very convoluted and required a third party software which was completely unnecessary.

In the furture, lets try and stick to advice that includes tried and true Windows 7 approved methods of setting up a network. :)

I'll post alternative methods as I like. It works for me quite well. My 3rd party software was only for the filesharing aspect and I told him it could be done with home groups as well.

Routers might have gotten easier, but I still have to tell people to open or forward ports a lot.

My way may not be the "windows 7 way" but it works just fine.

Router does what it does and fundamentially have not changed. Where they differ is not how they are used but how they are setup. Usually this implies securitising your personal network so others cannot log on and use your connection. My take on routers is that it should be set to the level that is required for you. Don't complicate your setup if it's not necessary to do so.

With all things IPs and connections, it's easiest and best to allow for auto detection and leave things to default as much as you can. I feel your (tannim) woes with routers were due to over complications resulted in adverse effects, otherwise i fail to see why using a router would not work in your favour.

As for third party software, i would advise against using it, especially if all you need to do is to share files. Why put more stuff on your machine than necessary?

At the end of the day, it's your machine and setup, do as u wish...but like a couple have said, lets do things from w7 perspective and keep it simple. I'm sure your time in sharing your experience would be appreciated.
