How are you trying to Network? Via a router, hub, switch, or just a peer-to-peer network (laptop-to-laptop)?
The Travelmate 800 has no ethernet controller or network controller drivers installed would this be the problem
That would be the best place to start. Can you get hold of the required drivers, and install them?
they both dont show their I.P adresses, it says its not available.
On both laptops, please goto Start
--> type CMD
and press OK
--> then type: IPCONFIG /ALL
- please post the results here by right-clicking on the Command Prompt window, selecting 'Select All', pressing the Enter
key, and then posting on this forum. Alternately, you can save your information to a text file by using the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL > C:\ipconfig.txt
-- navigate to that text file, and copy/paste the information from it.
