W7 looks ok, you haven't included XP.

Type ipconfig /all in command prompt of each machine, and post the results.
Here I put it in the form of a Mediafire download.

On your XP, what happened to your Local Area connection? It on'y have Local Area Connection 2.

Can you screenshot your XP's network connections (view with details).

Ok I need you to explain again.

To answer your question, I noticed that was strange that there was no Local Area Connection it just has a red X threw that connection so I disabled it, but I do have a good WiFi connection I tried to bridge the two but that seemed to be no good to.

Back to you last request can you explain? Because I don't have the software on that pc to do so.

So your Local Area Connection 2 is a bridged connection? We need to address that issue you have with the red X on the Local Area Connection. Can you delete the bridging, and enabled the Local Area Connection.

Screenshot would help.

Ok if I can get you a screenshot are you asking for LAN > Internet Protocol > Properties?

And as for now I do not have WiFi and LAN Bridged, only disable, I have enabled it, but even with it set to automatic assign it does not want to, when I try to see what Status it is at by right-clicking, Status is not accessible. Is this is where you want a screen shot?

Do you need another Ipconfig/ALL?
