I'm just trying to connect two computers, and I can't find any info that relates to what I want to do, heres my situation: I want to connect two computers, the first one is upstairs, and is connected to the internet (dial-up connection) the other one is in the basement no internet. Someone told me that all I needed to do was connect the two using a CAT5 cable to the LAN ports which I've done. I've screwed around with the network wizards on both comps specifing a Rhine 2 ethernet connection, but I keep getting a message telling me something is still disconnected. Will this set-up work? do I need to install network PCI cards in both comps, and connect through them? hook up a router or what?
