I am trying to connect my phone running ICS to my PC running Windows 7 to the internet using Connectify. Everything goes fine except when the phone tries to connect to my laptop wifi hotspot, it gets stuck at obtaining IP address . I tried to set the ip address to static in android but now it says connected but actually the phone is not connected to the internet.

As a static IP and DNS1, I set the address provided for the connectify network created in windows. I set the network length to 24 cuz without setting any value for network length, I wasn't able to save the setting in my phone.

How can I solve this problem?

Thank you for your support in Connectify. It sounds like your antivirus/firewall software may be blocking internet traffic. Check our Firewall/Security Settings article in our Knowledge Base.
