I recently purchased a lap top with my girlfriend. For the time being she is going to keep the laptop at her house, and her desktop will be kept at mine (don't ask).
I already have a desktop at home.
I now have her desktop set up at my house as well. I am attempting to connect her desktop, to my desktop or the laptop (not at the same time) with a crossover/ethernet cable.
Both desktops have XP with SP2.
The laptop has Vista Home Premium.
I successfully connected the laptop to my desktop, and have also connected the laptop to my internet connection.
I successfully connected her desktop to my internet connection.
The problem i am having is that i cannot connect her desktop to the laptop or my desktop. When connected to either of these the LAN network says it has little or no connectivity (as i have no router or anything yet, when two computers are connected to each other, they have no internet connection)
I'm at work at the minute as i didn't think of coming on here last night so if you think you could help, let me know what other information you need and i will post later
Thanks in advance
