I am trying to hook up two work computers that are less than 10 feet away from each other in the same room. Each computer has an ethernet card which is what I am trying to connect them with. I had a cable made at a computer store in order to hook them up. I have ordered a cross over cable which should be here in about a week. But I am having trouble getting the computers to talk to each other. My computer see the ethernet card but is telling me it is not connected. All I want out of this is the ability to share files between the two computers. Can anyone point me in the right direction to detailed instruction in order to do this? If you need more info just ask what you want to know about.
