Run network setup wizard on both machine. Enable "Internet Connection Sharing". Search XP's help, it will tell you how to do it. very easy to set up with XP machines.

You need Cat5e crossover wire, not patch wire. No need for anything else. If you do not have crossover wire, 5 meters cost £2.11 click here

By the way, try not to use capital letters in any net based discussion forum and email unless you mean it. Capital letters mean Shouting, general considerd as rude in internet.

ok now confused how do i no what wire ive got

did you mean a croosover adapter cos when ntl install bb they left one do i need it

Look at the cable connectors you should be able to see the coloured cables.... if they are in exactly the same order its not a crossover.

click here will show an example.

If it is not a crossover use the ntl adapter
