  1. Hey all, I'd be very VERY grateful for a step-by-step for this, thanks in advance.

    I have recently bought a new laptop, and would like to network it via crossover ethernet cable with my desktop, for file sharing, LAN gaming (and possibly to use the laptop's wireless connection for the desktop to access the internet).

    The laptop is wirelessly connected to my dads network, but my desktop is not.

    If someone could give me a step-by-step on how I could set this up, then that'd be very helpful.
