Windows 7: Home Networking Connection not showing

Home Networking Connection not showing


Ok, so i just bought a Wifi Router called Hame A1, and i want to use it as a wifi-hotspot through LAN RJ45 Cable from my PC.

I'm currently using a USB Modem as a main-weapon to access internet, and as i said i want to share my connection to my friends so we can access it through a wifi with my PC as a source of it..

And i've got the tutorial how to do it from a local forum and most of them has success with the tutorial, but i got a little trouble, which is:

Look at that "Home networking connection" with a drop-down to choose Local Area Connection or something, it's should be like that..

But, here's mine:

Different, right?

Without that drop-down, i can't do all the things i've said before about creating a wifi-hotspot through LAN RJ45 Cable from my PC.

I'm looking for a solution and found a thread on Microsoft Community: missing drop down box for home networking connection - Microsoft Community

I have try everything they said, but none of them fix my problem..

So, i hope anyone could help me with this....
