network windows 7

I  just add a new PC with Windows 7. I used a USB to transfer the network settings on the existing network running on XP, but a message pops up at the end that the set up cannot be complete

When you talk about transferring the network settings, are you referring to your TCP/IP settings on a domain?

thinkpad_users: correct, the USB would not transfer apparently transfer the settings.

MagicFarmer: I copy the settings from the network wizard setup in a current XP PC that contains the network information to the USB and plug the USB to the new Windows 7.  Double click on the network setup icon in the USB and follow the sequence, got the error message at the end.

Can you try a newer USB Key? My Kingston Data Traveller 200 works fine with Windows 7 Pro.
