Arrow Solved: Wireless Network issues
Hi. We've been using Connectify to share the internet connection in our house and it was working beautifully, then it stopped after we upgraded to pro but now it's working again. I'm using a windows xp and my sister is using windows 7. We were both connected to the wireless network but none of the computers could get on the internet; so I restarted my mom's laptop (which is the hotspot) and my sis's laptop started browsing but mine didn't and it's still not browsing. And when i check the wireless status it says "Sending 786 packets, receiving 5 packets". Please help.

You appear to have Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) enabled, probably on the ethernet. Disable that and make sure that the wireless connection then reverts to 'obtain IP auto' and 'obtain DNS auto.'

Ok so I used system restore and everything is working now. I think the problem was probably on my computer. So problem solved. Thank you TerryNet, your reply was quick.
