I have a DELL laptop(WinXP) with an intergrated 3Com Fast Ethernet controller and a COMPAQ PC(Win98SE) with a add-on Lantech NIC (Realtek). I got a crossover cable to connect the
I have connected the two PCs but I could not see the other PC on each PC. I think there issomething wrong with the configuration but I am not sure because this is the first timeI am connecting two PC with LAN cards and crossovercable.
Is there anything that I need to configure and install before connecting this two PCs ?I have installed the drivers for both the NIC. I am not sure which settings to use.
I want to share files and play games between these two PCs. I don’t plan to get a switchbecause I have only two PCs. Is there any guides on the net for networking ?
Both ‘My Network Place’ on XP and ‘Network Neighbourhood’ on 98SE is empty. I have set the Workgroup on each computer as ‘Home’.
Is there any solutions ?
