I have two old computers with Windows 2000 on them.
I have identical ethernet cards installed on them.
They are called 3COM Etherlink XL PCI TPO NIC(3C900B-TPO)
Device Manager says they are working properly.
Now I connected the computers with what I think is a crossover cable(The ends look like a phone cables but they are wider looking)
When I started up the computers, i guess the drivers were stock with windows 2000. Anyway yeah so it created a Local Area Network on my one computer but on the other computer it created Local Area Network 2 for some reason and when i tried connecting it said that the network cable was unplugged. I tried unplugging the cables and pluging them back in. I tried enabling and disabling. I tried restarting.
What should I do?
