    I have got two PCs each with a Lan card and would like to get them connected to each other so that i can play lan games and also transfer files.

    How do I do that :?:

    I have windows XP SP2 installed on both the PCs.

    Just purchase Some CAT5 Cables.....Lengths are acording to your needs.....Climp the RJ-45 Sockets both side....and the cable arrengement must be In Cross-Over.....

    Now go to the Network Connections Window....it is under the Accessories--->Comunication--->Network Connection.

    Open the Properties{Right clicking the Lan Cards ICON}.....and select the TCP/IP Settings--->Properties--->Specify Ip Address....


    Now Enter this -->
    For 1st PC
    TCP/IP:-192.168.0.10
    Subnet Mask:-255.255.255.0
    other fields you may leave blank

    For 2nd PC:
    TCP/IP:-192.168.0.11
    Subnet Mask:-255.255.255.0
    other fields you may leave blank

    You must set the both comp in the same work group.....by using the system properities--->computer name tab---> change work group....(expl:-nitinjavakid Home)...thats all.

    After succesfully excute the ping command in both PC .......you are in your private network(peer-to-peer)......Enjoy :wink:
