I'm trying to setup a home network between a windows 7 and windows xp machine. I have a small hub. My XP computer has a manually assigned IP address (192.168.0.10) and I set my Windows 7 machine to have a manually assigned IP address (192.168.0.15). The XP computer works, but the Windows 7 machine does not see the network. It says that there is no connectivity.

Ping does not work from either machine.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Do you get internet on either or both machines? –  Alec Gorge Apr 28 '10 at 1:06
    
Is the link-active light on for the hub where the W7 cable is plugged in? Is the W7 NIC card's link-active light (assuming it has one) on when plugged in? What is the netmask of your LAN? –  Fred May 1 '10 at 3:49

If it is a hub or a switch, make sure that there is no ip address assigned for the gateway on the LAN interfaces on either machine.

If it's a router, make sure that you have configured the router already.
