Connecting Two Computers Directly With Cable for a home network

The simplest and easy way to start a home network 

The simplest kind and easy to maintain of home network contains exactly two computers. You can use this kind of network to share files, a printer or another peripheral device, and even an Internet connection. To connect two computers for sharing these and other network resources, consider the options described below.
Connecting Two Computers Directly With Cable

The traditional method to network two computers involves making a dedicated link by plugging one cable into the two systems. Several alternatives exist for networking two computers in this manner: Ethernet crossover cable
Null modem serial cable or parallel peripheral cable
Special-purpose USB cables
Ethernet crossover cable
Null modem serial cable or parallel peripheral cable
Special-purpose USB cables
Ethernet - Of the above choices, the Ethernet method is preferred as it supports a reliable, high-speed connection with minimal configuration required. Additionally, Ethernet technology offers the most general-purpose solution, allowing networks with more than two computers to be built fairly easily later. If one of your computers possesses an Ethernet adapter but the other has USB, an Ethernet crossover cable can still be used by first plugging a USB-to-Ethernet converter unit into the computer's USB port.

Ethernet crossover cables

Serial and parallel - This type of cabling, called Direct Cable Connection (DCC) when using Microsoft Windows, offers lower performance but offers the same basic functionality as Ethernet cables. You may prefer this option if you have such cables readily available and network speed is not a concern. Serial and parallel cables are never used to network more than two computers.

USB - Ordinary USB cables must not be used to connect two computers directly to each other. Attempting to do so can electrically damage the computers! However, special USB cables designed for direct connection exist that can be used safely. You may prefer this option over others if your computers lack functional Ethernet network adapters.

To make dedicated connections with Ethernet, USB, serial or parallel cables requires
each computer have a functioning network interface with an external jack for the cable, and
the network settings on each computer appropriately configured
One phone line or power cord cannot be used to directly connect two computers to each other for networking.

Connecting Two Computers with Cable through Central Infrastructure
Rather than cable two computers directly, the computers may instead be joined indirectly through a central network fixture. This method requires two network cables, one connecting each computer to the fixture. Several types of fixtures exist for home networking: Ethernet hubs, switches, and routers 
USB hubs
Phoneline and powerline wall outlets
Ethernet hubs, switches, and routers
USB hubs
Phoneline and powerline wall outlets

Implementing this method often entails additional up-front cost to purchase more cables and network infrastructure. However, it's a general-purpose solution accommodating any reasonable number of devices (e.g, ten or more). You will likely prefer this approach if you intend to expand your network in the future.

Most cabled networks utilize Ethernet technology. Alternatively, USB hubs can be employed, while powerline and phoneline home networks each offer their own unique form of central infrastructure. The traditional Ethernet solutions are generally very reliable and offer high performance.
Connecting Two Computers Wirelessly
In recent years, wireless solutions have enjoyed increasing popularity for home networking. As with cabled solutions, several different wireless technologies exist to support basic two computer networks: Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi connections can reach a greater distance than the wireless alternatives listed above. Many newer computers, especially laptops, now contain built-in Wi-Fi capability, making it the preferred choice in most situations. Wi-Fi can be used either with or without a network fixture. With two computers, Wi-Fi networking minus a fixture (also called ad-hoc mode) is especially simple to set up. How To - Set Up an Ad Hoc WiFi Network

How To - Set Up an Ad Hoc WiFi Network

Bluetooth technology supports reasonably high-speed wireless connections between two computers without the need for a network fixture. Bluetooth is more commonly used when networking a computer with a consumer handheld device like a cell phone. Most desktop and older computers do not possess Bluetooth capability. Bluetooth works best if both devices are in the same room in close proximity to each other. Consider Bluetooth if you have interest in networking with hand held devices and your computers lack Wi-Fi capability. 

Infrared networking existed on laptops years before either Wi-Fi or Bluetooth technologies became popular. Infrared connections only work between two computers, do not require a fixture, and are reasonably fast. Being very simple to set up and use, consider infrared if your computers support it and you lack the desire to invest effort in Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

If you find mention of an alternative wireless technology called Home RF, you can safely ignore it. Home RF technology became obsolete several years ago and is not a practical option for home networking.

Try it is the best home network option.

I bought 1 box of belden cat5e for LAN. when i test it with LAN tester the cables are good but when i connect it to the modem/hub it is not connecting.. please help me.. thanks..

If you've tested the cable and your not getting a link light, there is a posibility that either the port in the switch or the network card is bad.You can try moving the cable to an existing working port on the switch to see if it links up. If not then try another device like a laptop or printer with a NIC card on the cable

How to configure Remote access/VPN server role (using windows as my operating system)?

You can configure a server that allows remote users to access resources on your private network over dial-up or virtual private network (VPN) connections. This type of server is called a remote access/VPN server. Remote access/VPN servers can also provide network address translation (NAT). With NAT, the computers on your private network can share a single connection to the Internet. You can find a step by step guide here:

I have Comcast bundle service for my home that includes tv, phone and internet which is digital. Can I use the Sensaphone 400 with this digital system?

This model may not be used on a digital system. It can be used on a standard phone line only, only engineered to handle standard phone line with pulse or tone dialing. I hope this helps!

I keep getting wrong cables message when I try to set reference with my Fluke Omniscanner. I can do a wire map but the last pairs show shorts. Could the cables be defective?

They might be defective but if they are new and originaly supplied from Fluke the chance is minimal, but it is possible. Try with another set of the cables.
