    To make things easier maybe, go to the Desktop, right click on it, choose personalize, and select the Desktop icons you would like to show, including Network and Control Panel. Then, check things out in Control Panel > Network and Sharing. Be sure your network is shown as Private. Run the troubleshooter. See what things look like when you go to the Change advanced sharing settings link in Network and Sharing. If I am a little vague, then please forgive as I am on a Mac far away from my Windows machine. To facilitate things, show your network icon in the taskbar notification area.

    The instructions I gave above will work in Win7 or Win8. You are looking for a screen like the following. I downloaded this from the web. As said, I am on a Mac right now. Since you are in Win7 now, you should be on your Desktop. Try to accomplish what I said in my first post.

    Have you checked in device manager under either Win7 or Win8 to see if it shows a problem with your driver. Are you interested in connecting only via Ethernet?

    Try running the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant to see if you have incompatibilities.
