Im trying to network my home pc and laptop together using an rj45 patch cable, but i keep getting the message that the cable is unplugged, can anyone tell me what im doing wrong? Both machines are using winXP pro.

to network two pc's directly using only one cable.

If you use straight through cables like you are doing you need to go through a hub etc
