I was just wondering, my friend and I want to play Star Craft with our laptops through lan, is there a way to do this with out a router? Is there a program? OR is the only way possible with a Crossover cable?

Thank You

Crossover cable would be the cheapest, most reliable way. Assuming both have ethernet sockets -- otherwise add a PCMCIA or USB version for not much cash.

Ad hoc wireless connection is another possibility -- but research on how as there are some slightly counter-intuitive changes you have to make to your existing network parameters.

Ok Thank you very much. I ended up buying a 7' Crossover cable for 3$ LOL No lag :) 

Thank you again!
