OK, so I've reinstalled Windows XP on a Host PC... and I've lost internet on mine, guest one.

I was knowing how to set it up, but forgotten again.

So, if I've reinstalled Windows XP on a -guest- PC, and internet worked from it - maybe the settings of a -guest- PC must not be adjusted (not sure).

I've setted up on a -host- PC 192.168.0.1 (tried with 192.168.0.2 as well), mask 255.255.255.0 and -haven't- setted a gateway yet. Nothing worked...

Also, when I was checking the setting of a network connection on a -host- PC, the settings were as mentioned (I think, there was no gateway... not sure).

I have no router, or anything, just a cable connection from host PC to guest PC. "Lights" are visible on -both- ends of a plugged cable.


So guys, if you'll help me quick - I will be very grateful. Please, the case is urgent, need internet very much.

...by the way, it's my birthday at Monday. ;)


Best regards and wishes,
