I'm currently running Windows 7 on my main machine and before today has a secondary machine running Ubuntu.
I finally decided to install XP on my second machine as I thought it may be more useful than having Ubuntu for me.
My Ubuntu setup before worked perfectly - I have an ethernet cable running from my main machine (that gets internet via WiFi) into my secondary machine and Ubuntu recognised this and gave me internet access!
Unfortunately this has not happened with XP. XP doesn't seem to do anything no matter how many times I plug and unplug the cable. I've had a little look into connection settings, but I can't seem to get anywhere.
