Hi I am trying to create a network with 2 pc's that can go on the internet with cable and share files. I am not using a hub, just a cross cable. I have installed a ethernet adapter in each pc already. But the problem is, it is not working at all. the client pc is not poppin up the logon screen at start. Both pc's don't recognize each other when tried in windows explorer. On the main pc (one with the cable modem) it now has 2 ethernet adapters because my internet company supplied one also. I have configured NetBEUI and IPX SPX to both pc's. I will list what is in the network section of each pc below to make it easier!! I hope!!
Client for Micro. Networks
Microsoft Family Logon
32 bit PCI fast ether. adp. (new one)
Dialup adp. #2(VPN SUPP.)
Microsoft Virtual. Private Networking Adp.
NDc 10/100 ether. (one supplied by cable comp.)
sorry for all this!!
IPX/SPX 32 bit fast PCI ether. (bound to all net. i.e client for micro. net.)
NETBEUI- 32 bit fast PCI ehter. (also bound to all net.)
NDISWAN Microsoft virtual.
TCP/IP- 32 Bit fast pci ether.new one!(bound to all net.)
TCP/IP- dial-up adp. (also bound to all net.)
TCP/IP- Dial up adp #2(vpn support) (left unbound to anything)
TCP/IP- NDC 10/100 fast ethernet from cable comp (left unbound)
and lastly in the window, file and print sharing for microsoft networks.
My friend told me to leave something unbound so other people for the network would not be able to meess around with my computer!! but the thing is, I don't know which one to leave! plz answer this... is the configuration correct?? and all the gateways, dns config. r left untouched for the main pc!!
oh to the identification tab.
Comp. name is the one given to me from @home service.
WOrkgroup is the one given to me also by @home service.
and the description is my own funky creation.
Now my other pc only has 1 network card in it. it has:
client for MS networks
microsoft family logon
32 bit pci fast ether adp.
Dial up adp.
IPX/SPX (bound to all)
NET BEUI (bound to all)
and TCP/IP (bound to all again)
and file and print sharing
I have changed to comp. name to pc girl and left the workgroup the same as "@home".
Now it does not recognize one another!! and the client pc is not poppin up the logon page at startup!!
could it be that the crossover cable is not put together properly or is my configuration messedup>?? I installed both cards before I hooked them up. oh and I am using all aboard internet translation program which is not installed in both pcs. plz help me!! I am sorry for the length of this message!!
