comment How to change from Public network to Private network
I'm going to do better now : try the Ubuntu Desktop Live ISO. If the DHCP discovery work, it's clearly a 100% Windows problem. If it doesn't it's a hardware problem. That may be a lot faster than re-installing the whole Windows 7 upgrade stuff and re-installing all my software...

comment How to change from Public network to Private network
Thank you very much for your answer. The problem seems there's either an hardware problem (due to the power cut), because I've done this so many times that it's not normal for it not to work, or a software problem. I've tried alle the different configurations possibles. I've got a nice router I stopped using a few months ago, I've turned it on, turned the DHCP on, plugged both my PC and my laptop, and got the same results : Windows 7 has a problem with both DHCP (no DHCP discovery) and manual configuration. I'm going to re-install Windows 7 and tell you what I've got. Thank you again.

Thank you very (very) much indeed for your answer. ping 127.0.0.1 works. Ping 192.168.1.254 does not work. The DHCP works, because my laptop if configured to get its IP from the DCHP server. And the DHCP server is the FreeBox (I've re-checked that it's "on", and the valid IP addresses distribution are between 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.50)

I hope that my description is better now, and I'm really sorry to talk that way, but, I hope you agree with me, loosing 8 hours for something like that is not normal at all.

comment How to change from Public network to Private network
I'm sorry if my comment sounds "arrogant". I'm just really annoyed (and I'm trying hard to stay polite when I write "annoyed") with a problem that should not appear, because it did not exist with XP. So it seems to me it's not "progress" it's "regression". And what really gets on my nerves is that my laptop work so nicely whereas the laptop itself cost less ($300) than the price of the 2 upgrades I've paid for XP => Vista then Vista => Seven.

I guess this is a 100% Windows Seven Problem otherwise I couldn't write here, with my nice and perfectly working Ubuntu laptop which is connected to the same network. Thanks for the hint, I'll modify my question to be more precise.

I've tried this. Nope. I had 3 "not active" connexions ("Local", "Local2" and "MMS"), I've deleted them all... and nothing: it still tries to connect, and detect only "unknown network = Public network"

comment ssh and shell through ssh : how to exit?
I've modified my question and added the whole script. Hope this helps. It seems that the problem may be the fact that I'm launching a background process (the line "./qaswvd &"). If you're right, this could be the origin of the problem?
