Hi All,I have an XP2600+, Leadtek mobo with built in rj45.I would like to network this with the PC next to me just to share files (well, back up files onto the other PC).I have lying around a PC Line 4 port hub, could I use this?I have 2 Questions.1) How would I do this?2) Would I need to install a 2nd NIC card on the main PC or could I plug the main lead into my hub, then run 2 more cables to the onboard lan of each pc?
if the two PCs both have on-board LAN you dont need the hub at all just a croosover cable to run between the two.
Hi Horiz,My main PC uses the onboard LAN for inet connection, would be a hassle to have to remove inet to network them together.
Buy another network card and connect as horiz5 outlines. Oh I just noticed you say you have a 4 port hub well you can use that to connect the two together using cat5 cable.
Cheers,I thought I could use the hub to do it all, thanks for all your help guys!
