Realtek RTL8139/810X Fast NIC is in my PC on top of an NFORCE 2 Lan Controller where my cable broadband is plugged in. Put a crossover cable to my other PC and straight into the built in lan. No firewalls while doing this but the network will not work. In my network connections I have the following. Local Area Connection,1394 Connection, Network Bridge & Local Area Connection 4. Have run the setup wizard on both PC's and all was well for one try. Started ZoneAlarm new network detected. Nothing worked after this. I now have two connections showing in the taskbar as unplugged. What am I doing wrong? T.I.A
I have one Ethernet Port in which my broadband uses. I put a network card on a PCI slot and then cable to the other PC's on board Ethernet Port. This worked before some months ago but will not work now. Different PC's then of course. I have disabled absolutely nothing as far as I know.
