Ok well i got one of my mates coming round tomorrow, and i was a little blunt on what we could do.
then i realized i could network my laptop and my desktop together.

its just... i'm not entirely sure how to do it.

Do i needa special sort of cable?? ive got a cable that fits into both network card slots, but is it just right like that?
My laptop has vista on it, but the desktop has XP on it, its still possible to connect them right?

Can someone walk me through how to connect them up?

thanks alot.

Hmm..have you plugged in the cables to both ends and tried setting up a network connection on your desktop?

You need an ethernet crossover cable. The are tutorials all over the 'net on how to configure the connection.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

It's called LAN...

...look it up.

Google it.



Well considering LAN is short for 'Local Area Network' and most people who dont call it a LAN call it a network i figure in calling it a network i was correct.
