    How are the two computers networked? What cables are you using and are they connected to the network cards? More info please

    the computers are connected by a RJ-45 crossover cable, yes they are connected to the network cards etc. as to your question nodsu - i got the network card install now my friend came round and fix it after he had the same problems with his compaq, i have got everything set up the right way but when i go into network connections it says Local Area Connection. network cable unplugged, i dont see how it can be unplugged its plugged in i have taken it out and put it back in about 5 times tryin to get it to work but i doesnt.

    Have you verified properly that it may not be the connection. If it is not sending or recieving bytes at all, it may be something more physical such as the cable, or the network card. good luck and I hope that helps :approve:
