Hey there parug1987, you can connect the two computers as long as they both have network cards i.e. ethernet port. You will need a crossover cable specifically to make the connection. Also, only connect them when they are both powered down. then start both fully, allowing the new connection to be recognized. From here you can run the network wizard and choose your options. This is a short term solution. If you want to have them always connected I recommend you use a switch or router for better results. Good Luck!

Tip

Using a crossover cable to connect two computers.


Hi.

You can use a crossover cable to share files and folders between the two computers.

A crossover cable looks exactly the same as any Ethernet cable, but its internal wiring is reversed respect to the regular cables used to connect computers to routers or switches.Crossover cables have the 1st and 3rd wires (counting from left to right) crossed, and the 2nd and 6th wires crossed, thay can be recognised because the word Crossover is printed on top of the cable.

Before proceeding ensure that the cable you are using is a crossover. Crossover wiring isdifferent. By using an ordinary ethernet cable you will not be able to extablish a directconnection between computers.

To use the crossover you will need to disconnect any other cable connection to computer ethernet cards. Naturally both computers must have a wired network adapter installed .

After connecting the crossover, you will need to configure the network connection.

Turn off both computers, connect the crossover (cat5 or cat6) cable, and turn back on computers.

Ensure that all firewallare turned off, and on Vista answer yes to all requests of authorization for the new network.

On both computers go to system properties, and ensure that the two computers have the same workgroup.

Second step is going to Sharing and Security, in system properties, and sharing the files and folder that you want to transfer.

Once the folders are shared you will see in My computer (Computer on Vista) the folder shared from the other computer. Simply copy and paste the files.

You may be asked to restart computer after each step.

If after sharing files and folder you want to share Internet connection, then you will have to assign two IP addresses that are in the same range to the two connected computers.
An IP address is a series of numbers from 1 to 256, in the format XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX . The two IP addresses must share the first three numbers to share the internet connection. In the real case, you can set the IP adresses to 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2.

How can i charge my battery with USB cable? i have problem with baterry or with baterry's port, i dont know exactly, please help me, thnxx


Because your question is NOT so accurate and clear, I will bring out to you the following scenario:

1- In case you have a problem in the electrical wired cable itself that hold the transfered power to charge the laptop battery then you can't do anything except buying another electrical charger.

2- In case you have a problem with the laptop battery, you can simply remove that battery and straightly connect the electrical wired cable to the slot power of laptop.

3- You recommended charging your batter with the USB cable, which is impossible due to the following reasons:
a) USB cables assemblies are used in the transmission of data across networks in case they are network
b) Cable assemblies are collections of wires or cables banded into a single unit with connectors on at least one end.
c) USB connectors are used with universal serial bus (USB) ports. They can be used to connect USB products together, or to connect USB wires and peripherals to other standard port types.
d) The cable assembly may be used for various computer applications like connecting mice, keyboards, printers, modems or other peripheral devices.

The concept of the above description is that you need a cable that transfer to you a specific voltage from a generated magnetic chain to the receiving destination.

Therefore, USB cable have a huge difference in the capacity of the Electricity cable, where USB cables are for data transfer, and Electrical Cables are for Electric Power Voltage (EPV) Transfer.

I know that you haven't ask for all of this, but the main idea of my explanation is to clarify on why there's NO USB cable that can charge your battery, and those that are charging your phone are doing that through the very low voltage that comes from the vibration of chain magnetic into the USB cable transfered from a higher voltage i.e. Computer, Socket Power, etc...

Make connection between 2 laptops


If both laptops have WiFi ... configure them for "Ad Hoc" connection.
One laptop will be the "master" ... the other (or several) can connect to the master. Doesn't matter which is the master.

Another way is via a special USB cable ... from RadioShack ($30)

Another way, if both have internet, is to "Allow Remote Assistance invitations", but this gets complicated and may not be what you want.... Anyway, right-click "My Computer" and select "Allow Remopte Assistance..." in the "Remote" tab...

If you are simply trying to transfer files, you might use: email or a flash drive...

Hope this helps!
