I would like to network 2 PC's to share internet/swap files etc.........What is the easiest/cheapest way to do it and what connections would I need?Both PC's Windows XP Home.Any advice greatly appreciated.
A simple crossover cable and run the network wizard.
Does the crossover cable need to be connected to Ethernet connections........excuse my ignorance.
Yes - it has the same connection on both ends and plugs into the network card on both pcs.
I think one PC has an Ethernet connection already installed but the other does not so looks like I will require the crossover cable and 1 card....simple as that?
Yes simple as that PCI network card in the machine without onboard lan and crossover cable and run the network wizard in control panel.
Many thanks for the info.
