Confused Problem with IPX protocol in W 7

A year ago, I played DFBHD, JOTR, and DFX, in a LAN network with 2 computers one with Win XP and another with Win 7. But when I tried to play Delta Force 1 and DF2 in LAN I got this error "Couldn't initialize provider".
I found out that old games like DF1, DF2, DFLW, DFTFD, require a special IPX protocol to play in LAN.
I've managed to install the IPX protocol in Win XP but not in Win 7.
+
Is there any way to install the IPX protocol in Windows 7 ?

I found somewhere that it is posible to do it in Win Vista, I tried to do the same in Win 7 but didn't work, Any Ideas?

Same deal as Vista just a bit harder to get there.
Find your existing connection in Control Panel and select the Network and Sharing Centre
To the left side select Change Adapter Settings then right click the Local Area connection and select properties and you can start installing a new protocol

The problem is that IPX protocol doesn't appear in the Default protocol list in WIn 7 and Win Vista because IPX is an older protocol.
But i've managed to install it in my Win as it says in this Page :

But the new problem is that Windows 7 can't use the IPX protocol because it can not find a Digital Sign for the protocol..
Is there any way to add a Digital Sign manually?

A driver that lacks a valid digital signature, or was altered after it was signed, can't be installed on 64-bit editions of Windows. You will only see this message if you try to install such a driver on a 64-bit edition of Windows.

Try the "Have Disk" option and direct windows to the location you placed the dll's and try initiating the registration of the drivers from the protocol's .inf file, ( netnwlnk.inf ) i THINK YOU NEED ONE OF THEM - OR BY CLICKING ON ONE OF THE dll'S TO INSTALL DRIVERS MANUALLY

Also try Setting the game compatability to Win98 or XP and it may work through native emulation?
