I am having a problem setting up a peer to peer network. I am new to this and don't know much of what I am doing. I have updated XP and selected peer to peer but, I don't know what to do next. Can somebody help me?

What are you using to connect? Ethernet patch cable or a Crossover cable? If you are using a regular cable (patch) you will need a hub, switch, or router. If you are using a crossover cable you cannot use a hub/switch/router.

I am alittle comfused. My do you want to connect peer to peer? Are you trying to connect to two computers in your house or on the internet? If you have a router on your DSL that is all you nee to connect the two computers.

I was told that we can talk to other computers without having to go through an ISP server. One computer can talk to another without any tracks left behind. I wouldn't have to use email or chat room. I could talk to anybody connected to the peer to peer. Is this correct? I only have one computer in the house. I want to go on the web or however it works. I was also told you can exchange music files there easier. Please let me know if this is right or possible. Thank you.
