Question about Computers & Internet
I have an Hp desk top computer running windows XP home, conected to the internet via satellite dish on the roof,, I also have an Ansus lap top running windows XP profecional, connected to the net via Belken router, and they work fine, I would like to connect the two computers together,to exchange emails data etc,, and would not have any idea how to go about it.. regards from Lionel ,
Your easiest way would be to go but a Switch and hook the two together then hook the switch to a single iternet connection. (Most people think of a switch as a hub but a hub doesnt do as much. You can usually pick up a lynksys switrch for 30 bucks)
If a sewitch is not an option then i would suggest getting anuther network interface card for the pc, put install it, and bridge the connection between the two network cards so the internet is comming in one then out the other to the laptob, then just hook the laptop into it.
short of that if you are looking to keep both computers on segfregated networks and then linkk them together then you are looking at a new network card for the pc and a usb to network adapter got the laptop then link the two togethter.
maybe it would be easier if you just transfered the files over the internet through a Ftp Clientlike cuteftp or blazeftp and not even link the two computers at all. it may tak a little more time but it would be alot cheaper and alotr easier and if it s just small files you probly wouldnt even notice a difference.
Hope this helps.
