Why is the internet (via ethernet) working on one pc but not on another or a mac?

Internet works on one windows 7 laptop via ethernet but not on a macbook pro and not on another windows 7 laptop. Ethernet is my only option right now, router is not available.
I want to fix this particular issue not internet connection sharing (thank you for thinking though).

Windows 7 laptop on which the internet works is a pretty clean and fresh computer running nothing but Microsoft security essentials and windows firewall (built-in).
The Windows 7 laptop #2 is running Comodo firewall (which was disabled) and has Microsoft security essentials installed.
The Mac has the mac firewall running (from security and privacy in system preferences which i also disabled) and little snitch. I believe both were disabled but still led to the same issue of it not working.
