I am disabled and have a windows millenium edition in my bedroom and a windows xp downstairs. I have internet on my xp and would like to connect it to the millenium set. I am not able to afford wireless and have been told by engineer at PC World that I could connect simply by purchasing USB to Lan convertor . Unfortunatly no stores local stock this item and PC world do not obtain single items .Can anyone suggest where I could purchase in the Middlesex area.

Hi Freddyboy,

All you need is a ethernet card in each PC, (CHEAP ON EBAY) and a cross over cable to connect the two PC's together. then run the network wizzard.

To Aravinda24,

Please do not post in someone else's thread, it cofuses the issues.

However to answer your question, you need a crossover cat5 cable to connect the two PC'S without a router.

Once connected run the Network wizzard on the main pc and follow the instruction through

Regards,
