Default Help please::: Connect 2 comps to the net using network cards....

sponsored links

 
I just want to ask a couple of questions about these...

1) If I have two computers (both Desktop comps) and I want them connecting together for either sharing files, playing games or conencting to the internet, how many Network Cards will I need?

2) Is it possible to connect to the internet using one internet connection and one phone line (not sure if you'll know what i mean )?

3) Can anybody tell me full details on what i'll need to connect the two comps together please?

4) Does anybody know of any sites on how to connect the network cards together and how to set it up OR do you know how to?

Help would be much appreciated,

Thanks

1) One for each pc (assuming you are not using a cable modem).

2) Yes. You set up the pc with the modem to allow internet connection sharing & the other to use the first as an internet gateway. Obviously the pc with the modem has to be running to access the internet on the other pc.

3) 1 network card for each pc. If you are only connecting 2 pcs you don't need a hub. Just get a crossover network cable.

4) Anyone know a site that tells you? Easier than me writing it all down.
It's fairly simple to do though.
