Connecting Computers

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Just have a quick question, is there a way I can connect 2 computers together to transfer files, without using a router? Just a straight connection through the NIC? I think I already know the answer, but your input would be appreciated  :lol:

Nope... a crossover connects the transmit data wires from one NIC to the receive data wires of the other NIC and vice versa.

They're fairly cheap to buy, or you can hack up an existing cable and rewire it... I'd suggest buying one or making one though.  It's rather easy to make a dead cable by hacking it up...
