Hi,

I am wanting to connect 3 computers together with 2 cables. One computer has 2 network cards, lets call it A. The other 2 are B and C. Is it possible to connect B & C to A (maybe if A's cards are bridged), and be able to share files and play a game over this type of network? I have the correct cables.

thanks.

I am pretty sure you can't. Best off buying an ethernet switch, or setting up a wireless ad-hoc network.

I'm not sure but I think you can accomplish this by bridging the two connections on computer A.

You may have to fiddle with it.
