    I use a router not sure how to do a direct connect
    you may need software (SMB) netbios settings
    should be lots of tutorials on subject out there

    For connecting a couple of machines together, i've always been partial to a switch. When coupled with a router, this connects your computers together and allows both to connect to the internet as well. But Microsoft has some decent instructions on directly connecting windows machines.

    Check this link from microsoft's support site.

    In many cases when you buy a kit that has a cable and transfer software you should use the software for it to work properly.

    Hope this helps.

    Good luck.
