trying unsuccessfully to share a broadband connection on my desktop running Wondows 2000 Pro with my laptop running XP SP2. I've got devolo plugs to netwrok through the mains and these work OK. and am using a network switch to connect ethernet on desktop. All the indications are that Microsoft doesn't allow for XP to network with Win 2000. Any suggestions that don't involve upgrading desktop to XP or getting a modem/router?
I'm using a built in network adapter on the desktop to connect to a switch which connects to one devolo then through the mains to the other devolo and cable to laptop - thought the adapters were ethernet. Does this make any sense?
