Networking two computers?

Is a hub essential for this to work? I just want to direct connect two machines (XP) through ethernet.

you could use a cross over cable, if you are just going to use 2 computers.

but either way you will need to set the computers up with their own IPs and subnet masks
You can buy a cross over cable at Best Buy. But make sure the sales guy knows that you want a cross over cable

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/135...lvl2spprt3.gif

you can get a cheap hub for about 25, and that will allow you to have at least 4 computers connecting to the hub. Though you will still need to assign your own IPs and subnet masks.

I never could get the crossover cable thing to work. I had all kinds of help too. Finally scrounged up some cash and bought a router.

If it`s just files between the two XP machines you want to transfer back and forth, I am able to do that with just a reg LAN cable between the two computer`s LAN ports, as long as both machines are set to share. The cable has the same wire layout end to end when you lay the plugs side by side and compare the colors of the wires.
If it`s the internet you want for both machines plus transferring files between, then a hub or switch between the machines and the router is what you want.

so you are saying that you are/can use a regular cable between 2 computers and transfer files back and forth? A standard e-net/cat 5/whatever you want to call it cable? And it works???

Please tell me that is what you are saying...

You are a freaking idiot.

Here is a shot of the two boxxes connected with only the CAT5 LAN cable between each LAN port, the cable does say CAT5, and on one end is a sticker that says "Straight Cable"
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...e/PB120085.jpg
here is a screenshot of the '7800sli' box transfering files from the other 'little' box.

If you would like any other further info, plz just ask.

I am not saying that you don't know how to transfer data (duuuuhhhhhh don't ya jest makeum admins??)

I am saying that you don't even know the name of the medium that you are using..

I am saying that you are a fool
I am saying that you are a tard

I am saying that you have no idea how to do what you are wanting to do. I think someone did it for you.

If you really think that you are correct.. TRUELY think so...

Answer this:

Did you have to setup your own IP addresses and subnets?
What is your default gateway?
what's your DHCP addresses?
can you ping each other by host name? can you ping each other by IP?
what does Net View give you in a CMD line?

and be VERY CAREFUL when answering....

what did I say about asking a question without looking like a flaming fool??

Did you have to setup your own IP addresses and subnets? NO
What is your default gateway? Don`t know, didn`t need to know.
what's your DHCP addresses? see above.
can you ping each other by host name? can you ping each other by IP? I don`t have to ping the other machine nor did I try, I just browse there in windows, go to the other machines folders I want, copy and paste to the folder on my machine.
what does Net View give you in a CMD line? I don`t know what Net View is, but I`d be willing to dnld it and give you a screenshot of or whatever you`re asking for, have a link??

LOLOLOL

Net View... open a command lin and type N-e-t V-i-e-w and hit enter

you want a link??

http://localhost

If you do not setup your IP addresses and subnets then the computer can't be talking to each other... By default XP searchs for a DHCP server which is how you get your IP address.. and with out a subnet, then you can't do anything with an IP addy
