i need to setup a wired network for a client real soon. he has a laptop and a desktop, both have built in LAN 10/100 ports. he doesnt have an internet connection [says he uses a T1 connection in the office, saves a lot of cash :whistling: ]. what he wants is a simple wired [strictly] network that can be used for transferring files between the laptop and PC and for playing network games. he has all the equipment [LAN cable etc. etc.]. his PC is runnin Windows 2000 Professional and his laptop has windows XP which is why i cudnt help him myself cuz i have never never successfully created a network between these 2 OSs [there's some wizard that is not present in 2000 so it was never possible with my level of skills]. prob is, i havent met him or even seen his setup; he jus contacted me thru email. i've attached pics describing wat he wants. i need help really quick; client says he'll tip me rated on how easy is the setup and how quickly its all done :blink: .

I'm sorry but we cannot help. If you have read our terms of use, you would have read this:

We offer free computer help and tech support for home and personal use. We are not here to support others that work for profit, or to support/replace your company's IT department.


All I can say is check this out. You'll have to use that, or Google, to solve your own problem.

Sorry. :whistling:

Yes it can... you can network any Windows OS(95, 98, 2000, ME, XP) to any other Windows OS (95, 98, 2000, ME, XP) provided you install the correct TCP/IP protocols. You can even network some Linux OS's and Mac OS's to windows...
