    I want to connect my two home PCs by LAN for file transfer purpose. Please suggest (or mention any link) the step-by-step procedure.

    BTW, one of the PCs has a LAN card by which I enjoy the Broadband connection. Can I use this LAN card to make LAN connection between two PCs when Broadband is not used?

    You can buy a 4port hub.. a lan card for the other pc... some networking cables.. then connect the cable from your pc to the hub and another from the hub to the other pc.. first install the lan card in the other pc.. then configure settings like ip addresses should be in the same range i.e. 192.168.1.x on one and 192.168.1.y on the other.. both should be under same workgroup..
    file and printer sharing should be turned on...got ny other queries.. post here.

    Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
    Default getway 192.168.1.1

    Preferd DNS 61.0.0.5 (or ur ISP DNS)
    Alternet DNS 61.1.96.71 (or ur ISP DNS)
