    I'm new to networking and for the first time I connected my two machines (both win 2000 pro) with a cross over network cable. I've installed Netbeui in the LAN properties and on both machines I have the two computer icon in the task bar saying connected at 100MBPS but cant seem to do anything from here?

    Any suggestions?

    Are you trying to Share Files and Printers.

    Go into your connection properties and make sure File and Printer sharing is installed and then find a folder you want to share and Right click on it and select sharing.

    I don't believe that's all it was! I wasn't sharing the files. Thanks for that.

    The machine that the DSL modem connects too is fine on the internet, but I still cant get the other machine online any ideas on that?

    You want to share your Internet Connection!!!:)

    Windows has a Built in ICS function but, most of us do not recommend using ICS to share an Internet Connection. If your cable/dsl modem has a Ethernet port buy a cheap home router. Look at my signature for the latest cheap router deal.

    Here is a link for setting up ICS in Windows.

    If you dont want to spend money on a router then try some of the software based Proxy servers to share your Internet Connection. These work better than ICS the majority of the time. ICS can be real flaky sometimes.

    Analog X Proxy Server

    Free Proxy

    Proxy +

    Please buy a router.
