Make sure it's on the wireless adapter...
The ethernet one is DHCP enabled already... But thanks, I forgot to mention that HUGE detail...

But, do you know why it happened? You were wrong about just plugging a computer into another computer and having a network. Windows 7 does that. Even with XP. Something just got changed unexpectedly and I've never seen it happen that way so any more info you have might help me help others! Thanks!
