Windows 7: Win 7 & XP: sharing Internet and files

#5 will try that turning off modem EDIT: didn't help
#9 ICS already enabled
#10 I don't have router, just a switch

Also, my friend said that it's possible to share connection and files using a 'pc-2-pc' cable, if using a USB cable (have this) from modem to main PC. Is that true?

If you were using "Internet Connection Sharing", you would connect the two computers directly via your switch, which shouldn't also be connected to the Modem. The PC you're using as the Host would then connect to the Modem (either by USB or by ethernet, but to use ethernet the PC would need to have two network adapters installed).

What your friend is suggesting is to connect the two computers "Network Adapter" to "Network Adapter" with a crossover ethernet cable, but the same effect is obtained by connecting them via your existing "switch".

EDIT: after disconnecting Ethernet cable and connecting modem to pc with a USB cable, I am not able to connect to Internet at all..

When you connect to the modem by USB, instead of by ethernet, it is normally necessary to install the software which is required to create the USB connection. Did you get a CD with the modem?

Yes I think I have some kind of CD with modem, will try it and post here.
EDIT: There're quite a lot setups (see image), maybe you know which should I install?

Try the D-link folder and see if there is anything that looks as if it relates to setting up a USB connection.
