    Hi all

    I am looking for help with a networking prob.
    I have just tried to set up a pentium 166 running 98 networked to an
    athlon2200 running XP.
    I am using ethernet pci cards from dolphin , the cards are detected and
    working fine , but on the athlon machine it is saying that the network cable
    is unplugged??? It isnt unplugged and is connected to both cards on both
    comps.

    Do i need a hub for two machines , i was told that i dont and can connect
    them direct . What am i doing wrong ??

    any help would be appreciated :)

    Graeme

    Almost certainly not. You can get Cat6 crossover cables, however.

    You can get adaptors that just plug on the end and turn it into a crossover.

    All of my cat5 cables are black, red or grey. All of my crossover cables are
    blue (except one, which is grey). This includes at work, where I have 400+
    cat5 cables, and about 30 crossovers.

    You can buy them in any colour you like.

    For most of them, no - thankfully :)
