  1. You can't connect two laptop that way. The VGA port on both laptop are VGA output.
  2. any way of using an ethernet cable to transfer files, stream, transfer videos etc.
    problem is laptop in living room has good connection to public wifi, so can stream from youtube quickly. laptop in the bedroom has access to no internet. so is there any way for the bedroom laptop to show what is on the living room laptop?
  3. Set up an adhoc with the laptop in good reception area and share the internet with the laptop in the poor reception area.
  4. I'll move this to wireless networking so people there can help you.
