wondering if any of you can help. i am having a nightmare connecting 2 pcs together. both pcs with same nic's and have got a direct connection with a cross-over cable. the problem is that they cannot connect together. ive checked workgroup issues, ip addresses, tried pinging each computer (no results - timed out).
the only insight i have is that on one of the cards one light is on whilst the other flashes, but on the other nic both lights are on constantly. i have done internet searches, but i can't find out what this means.
any help appreciated, and i will be online most of the time to answer any little questions people have.
