Linking a Desktop and Laptop

  Caroona 17:55 31 Oct 2005


I bought a new desktop and have a laptop. I want to network them so that I can share and transfer files. I've got a crossover cable. Can anyone kindly talk me thru what I have to do to connect them, please?

What cable do you have exactly? USB Crossover? Ethernet Crossover?

Not sure. It's not the same as a USB connection. Both ends look similar to the internet/phone connections, but slightly bigger.

Thanks Fruit Bat, but I don't want to connect them both to the same internet, I want to network the computers so that I can transfer and share files.

Try this - I haven't read it myself, but looks promising:
