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.
