networking 2 computers for 56K internet access... need help

Recommended Posts

see how in the pic, the wires are the same colors in the same spots?  thats a straight-through cable.  you need a router or switch to connect to another computer with it.  a crossover cable has (usually) green and orange pairs switched, and brown and blue pairs switched.  if the colors arent in the same order, its probably a crossover cable

thanx PHP for trying to help me...

do we have ne people that know alot about direct connecting 56k inet sharing?

Been there, done that, but why are you going to share that very small bandwidth? never mind, I did it, well if you wanting help, we are going to need to know more about your set up first.... like what windows versions on both machines, and did you get a x-over cable yet....
