I've set up an ad-hoc network on Windows 7 between my ethernet port (cable modem coming in) and a Linksys wireless card. The Ipod can see the network and connect to it, but then no IP address is assigned to it (it has the 169.254xx address). I've been researching this for a couple of hours with no luck.

I've tried with and without security on the network - same results either way

Windows Firewall is disabled.

Hope this is the right section btw. Please help :(

This is for XP but the concept is the same. You use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS).
