Well, here goes. This should not be a problem, however I am having a very difficult time with this set up.

One machine is a: eMachines t5048
Windows XP Media Edition
Intel Pentium 4 3.07GHz
1.37 GB Ram
Linksys Wireless-G PCI Adapter
Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC

I am trying to set up a p2p connection via a crossover cable to another machine using the Ethernet NIC (that machine is running Windows 2000 Server) Can someone help me get this simple connection to work. I have searched online for assistance and I have not yielded any useful results.

I am also attempting to access the internet using the Wireless adapter. I cannot get them to work simultaneously. I forgot how to resolve that. (I have been out of touch with networking for many many years.)
Any help resolving this is also needed. I feel like a complete idiot because I know the resolution to both of these problems are easy. I am prepared to be flamed.

I solved the first problem. I do however require assistance getting the wireless card and the NIC card to work simultaneously. Any and all assistance is appreciated.

Did you assign the second NIC a different IP address?
