Directly Connecting two PC's Tags: Connection Computers Networking Last response: January 17, 2010 11:30 PM in Networking Share hiropro717 January 17, 2010 10:49:28 PM Okay so basically I have two computers directly connected with an Ethernet cable and both of those computers are connected to a wireless network. My problem is that when I want to transfer files over the direct line I have to disable the wireless connection on the computer I'm using or it transfers the files over the wifi. How I know this is that if I'm connected to the internet I only get 1mb/sec transfer speeds and if I disconnect it shoots up to 10mb/sec. I'm not really sure how to get the computer to transfer over the direct connection with the internet connection on. Any help is greatly appreciated and thank you in advance.

The syntax is: route add other_PC_IP_address mask 255.255.255.255 Interface_IP_address_to_use Example: route add 10.1.1.2 mask 255.255.255.255 10.1.1.1 If it works, add -p to the command to make it permanent. You can delete a route with this command: route delete route_to_delete Can't find your answer ? Ask !
