1) Connect the cross-over cable to your w7

Subnet = should be auto filled out once u hit Tab from the IP location. Otherwise 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway = 115.186.121.1

3) test ping from w7 to xp.
4) once pings are good, leave cable as is, untick manula ip selection and set to auto detect.

5) Goto w7 and select your main LAN and the LAN to your xp,then brigde it.

Give it some times in betweens before testing IE.

No ip to be set for the second lan card which connects windows 7 to XP

You should cos this is a good way to test the ports and cable connectivity between w7 and xp.

So you set your xp Ips to these

IP = 115.186.121.6 (6 is just a number in my head)
Subnet = should be auto filled out once u hit Tab from the IP location. Otherwise 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway = 115.186.121.1

Otherwise tri IP:
115.186.121.126 or
115.186.121.121

The guy in the other thread bought a router and had his w7 hooked up to his wireless network and xp cabled to w7 and he got things working. And i've tested with the router as well.

Have not tested my w7 cabled to my modem like in your case, but will try it, after i get some sleep and get back to u. I wouldn't think it's any different though.
