i cant seem to get networking to work with my 2 comps i have a crossover cable attached to both and i can access the internet with the dial-up on my host computer but the computers cant see each other or ping each other but each comp can ping itself both are running xp pro i have searched everywhere for info but cant find out whats going wrong
on host comp i have 2 lan inputs which i disabled the one not connected to and i disablewd a "net adaptor" what ever that is ... my mobo on the host is an asus a7n8x deluxe which comes with the 2 lans etc
if anyone can help me set-up it up file transfers would be gr8
errm how do i assign resource sharing ?
i had done all the rest most of it i got xp to set up everything from chosing one server as host with internet connection the other computer as connects with internet through second computer ..... i get this msg when i click on "view network computers" on both comps ... "HOME is not accessible, you might not have permissions to use this network source" btw "HOME" is what i labeled the network name of the computers
could someone plz go into detail of what can fix this as i dont have the money to go out and waste on an ethernet hub when it should be an easy process of connecting 2 computers by crossover
p.s. i had also done the ip giving each comp same ip's but last digits 1 different number and subnet mask to 255:255:255:0 on both
