I am trying to connect mine and my buddies computers together using a crossover wire. However, my network connection says it is connected but does not send or recieve any packets. My buddies seems well enough. I have tried many things, including repairing connection, but when i attempt to it say: "Windows could not finish repairing this problem because the following action cannot be completed: TCP/IP is not enabled for this connection." I have spent maining hours in agonising frustration and would appreciate any input on my situation!

How did you setup the two machines IP addresses? If you let Windows do it, try this.

Setup the machine as follows:

PC1:
IP Address: 192.168.0.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

PC2:
IP Address: 192.168.0.3
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

Leave the other settings blank. See if that allows you to connect.
