I have direct access to the internet. My OS is Windows 7.

I want to share internet to mobile devices via WIFi, but Windows shows that PC doesn't connected to internet. And I can't share wifi on this reason.

How can I change "No internet access" on "Internet access"?

Thanks for any kind of help.


it's my ipconfig info: enter image description here

Did you run the network troubleshooter. And I suggest connectify for internet sharing. Much better than windows in-built one – pratnala Dec 16 '12 at 15:55
I try to use connectify, but it sharing only network, not internet. – Val Dec 16 '12 at 15:56
"No internet access" usually means that you did not receive a proper DHCP address and you'll most likely have a so called APIPA address assigned to your network interface. These adresses start with 169.254. Can you put the output of the command ipconfig (run this from the Command Prompt) in your question? – Oldskool Dec 16 '12 at 16:19
If this can helps. Done. – Val Dec 16 '12 at 16:35
