    Unable to connect via direct connect.


    ok, so i have 1 windows 7 laptop that is able to connect to Wifi and i have a fresh Mint 14 laptop that is all i need to do i plug into a direct connection for like 1 minute to download/activate the wireless drivers. I have set the Win7 laptop to share its connection, but when i plug into it via ethernet it is never able to get a connection, What am i doing wrong here? Im open for any suggestions or windows programs if anyone knows of any to make this easy... I would really love to get my Mint up and going. i appreciate any input

    Hi,

    What exactly do you mean by "direct connection"? Do you mean you are connecting the two laptops together via Ethernet cable, or is it some other cable (serial, parallel, etc.)?

    Is this some sort of Windows Internet Sharing thing?
