    Hi!

    I'm trying to know how to network two computers with a
    RJ-45 cable and without a hub. I bought an inverted cable,
    then connect both end to both our computers, and we just
    can't see each other. We both have installed file/print
    sharing, IPX and TCP/IP. I'm using WinXPSP2 and my friend
    has Win2000.

    Can you help us?

    Thanks a lot!

    Michel

    You should post to one of the general networking newsgroups. This newsgroup
    supports Microsoft's Broadband Networking hardware and software only. Also
    do a little search with your favorite search engine for "ad hoc network" and
    you should come up with plenty of information.
