im very good with computers in all areas except for networking, so this is where i need your help. we have two computers in our house. one that runs windows 95 and the other that runs windows 98. the 98 came preinstalled with a networking card and i installed the 95's networking card. is there any way that i can connect these two computers together via a network without using some sort of central hub that i commonly see used in networks? what i mean is can i take a networking cable (please specify which one i should use) and plug the two together to establish a network? are there any system requirements of each system to do this? what about software? any help is very much appreciated. thanks.

Hi

I am not very good with Networks either but.....

I have two PC's in my home (Me and XP) and have just purchased the Intel Anypoint Wireless II system for them. Not "really" easy to set up, but after a call to customer support, both PC's are now talking to each other, both can access the www at the same time and all this without a central hub.

Expensive option, but it works!

Good luck

John
