I'm new to networking :whistling:
I've just bought a cat5 crossover cable to connect my pc to my laptop and I've set up a network on both pc and laptop but on the pc ( where i've put that this pc connect directly to the internet, while for the laptop it is not ) it says connect while on the laptop there is a yellow exclamation mark on the icon. Can anyone help me solve this prob. Coz i can't transfer file to and for the pc or laptop or connect to the internet from the laptop.

Sorry for my poor english :blink:
