I am attempting to connect my laptop to my PC using a crossover cable. My intention is to use the PC as a storage device and to use the dvd drives.
I have already set up a wireless network which works fine but is slow.
I followed the instructions from click here
but I get a limited or no connectivity message any idea of what I have done wrong
