I just installed Win7 about a week ago, and everything was going fine. A few days ago though, when I turned on my computer, I wasn't able to connect to the internet (I'm writing this from my laptop When looking at my network settings, I tried clicking on the red "X" across the line to the internet, and I uploaded a litte picture to show you the info I got out of that below instead of my trying to explain it...I'm connecting to a shared network in my block via a cable directly to the wall socket, no router, and as you can see I am able to see some of the others logged on to it, but at the Gateway there's once again that evil red "X".
