hi, they do say that no question is silly if you do not know the answer, so here goes....

both my PC's have the socket for the cable, i have a wireless adsl router which works ace, but i could never get the file sharing to work, now for the question.....if i plugged the cable into both PC's would that do so i could share files, I am nervous of plugging it in in case it all goes down the kermit...
thanks

If you're connecting 2 PCs directly, you'll need a crossover cable.

thanks
