I am trying to connect 2 PC with a crossover cable. I went to network properties and then tried to Set up an advanced network. But the option for Direct connection is faded. Can any one tell me whats the problem?
Thanks in advance

i think you needed a swith/hub where you will connect the 2 computers using RJ-45 connector and also the internet connection.

You don't have to use the "Direct connection". There's no really any differences at this level between two PC connected in a LAN trough a swtich or an hub, or directly with a crossover cable (except when you'll need to add a 3rd PC or another ethernet device, off course).
So just setup a normal network, and be sure to use some compatible IP address (like 192.168.0.1 & 192.168.0.2), and the same workgroup.

Bye!
