Help please Tags: LAN Networking Last response: April 19, 2010 4:20 AM in Networking Share kiwichristian April 19, 2010 1:19:57 AM I am COMPLETELY confused here! I have a main pc and a netbook. No router or anything, and dialup. I want to hook the two together to share files. I have a crossover ethernet cable and have run the windows network setup wizard on both computers, and nothing. Can someone assume that i am ignorant and stupid ( ! ) and give me basic instructions on how to lan these two together, please.
