Make sure both computers are in the the same workgroup. Go to control panel, system, click the "computer name" tab. Where it says "workgroup" there should be a name like MSHome, or something you entered. Both pc's have to have the same name there. They also both have to have the same user account on each one. For example I have my user account on my pc and on my other one I have the same username with administrative priveledges on both.

before starting make sure the cable you are using to connect the 2 computers is either a crossover cable or 2 normal grey cables using a hub. crossover cables are nomaly coloured yellow(correct me if im wrong) if you are using a serial cable make sure the com ports are configured properly etc.

go to network properties via the controll panal or some tother way and make sure that both computers have a ICP/IP compantable protocal, if they dont add one to each by pressing add protocal adn following the on screen instructions, normaly the protocal you want to add is called "microsoft TCP/IP compatable protocal" or summin like that

any way once both machines have one of them you need to access to properties of each one and navigate to the tab contains "specify an ip address" in one computer add the ip address:

192.168.100.1

and on the other

192.168.100.2

subnet mask on both should be 255.255.255.0

also make sure that both computers have a file shring protocal in the protcal list also, normaly on most versions of windos there is a button saying file and print sharing, click it and tick on file sharing.

also navigate to the identity tab and fill in the fields.

now press ok and restart

on one computer now share one or more files and they should be accessable via network neibourhood.

HOPE THIS HELPED! :tazz:

just to add... in xp to access your connection protocal go into control panal and select classic view in teh top left. now double click on network connections. if you have a bridge right click on that and select properties else it will be the one called local area network that you need to access teh properties for
