Hi
I'm wanting to connect two home computers. Does anyone direct me to getting step by step instructions. Both computers have windows 98. One has a nic card and the other is connected to the internet with a 56k modem. I sure would appreciate any suggestions.
Thanks

before they can be connected you'll need another NIC for the computer that doesnt have one, then a straight through cable, you can pick these up for cheap enough
when you have these too things let us know.

Well, you'll need both machines to have a NIC card if you want to network them.

Hi,
Thank-you both very much for the help. I'll be in contact with you as soon as I get a NIC for the 2nd computer.

See above panot for pc to pc.

If you are going to connect more, connect PCs to a router with Straight Through cables.

Make sure that the PC that is connected to the Internet has Windows 98 Second Edition, this is the only version of Win 98 that has internet conncetion sharing.
