    I'm installing some programs for a friend on their laptop and it won't connect to my home network, my windows xp computer works just fine, and connects on both cables.

    Its going from Cable Box > Router > Switch > Computer

    The router see the laptop with Win 7 and asigns it an IP which if put in Manually the internet works (dns, and gateways ips too)

    I uninstalled McAfee Free, from the computer and I didn't check to see if the internet was working or not before I removed it.

    It's all up to date but i don't know whats wrong.

    I tried fixing it with supperanti spyware repair feature, but that didn't work.

    Though my computer, the Onboard Lan on the motherboard died and did the same thing but this is a new computer so it shouldn't do that. Though i never did get the on board lan working though.

    Any help would be much appreciated, though its tonight and in the morning i got to work on it. I'm a windows xp user, so windows 7 is just pain in the but to use for control panel options.

    Check that the DHCP service is running in the Services. I had a new laptop that wouldn't connect to any hotel networks. One trip I discovered that the DHCP service was set to manual. As soon as I started the service, it connected just fine.
