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.
