i have been trying to network 2 computers together for playing games. 1 windows me. 1 windows 98 (hp ed). The cards are in correctly the cord is a crossover. I ahve tried netbuei and tcp/ip protocols and even microsoft networking wizard. They will both be set up properly "by the book" and the computers will fail to communicate with eachother. nothing will happen. i managed to see the other computer in "my network places" using microsoft netwroking wizard but could not access.

both network cards are realtek

Could someone please tell me what should i do?

could someone who actually knows what they are doing tell me how to tcp/ip crossover network my computers........

Well lets see your IP configurations.

Open up a Dos Prompt on each machine and type:

ipconfig /all
