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
