Guide for aComputer to Computer via Ethernet Connection
This is a guide to connect two computers without the need of using a router, switch or hub. Thereare two methods of networking between two computers: Physically, using a Ethernet wire or using radiowaves with an Wireless Ad-hoc (also known as Computer-to-Computer or Peer-to-Peer) connection.Since there’s no router, switch or hub in between them there not a DHCP to assign each computer an IP address Server and a Default Gateway,
you will first have to manually specify an Address for theConnection and a Default Gateway
(not for Internet but for File and Printer Sharing). If you don’t do this,Windows will look for an Alternative Configuration and give it an Automatic Private IP Address (APIPA) by default, which although will only give you a “Limited or No Connectivity” status in you network.The pros to a Crossover Cable connection is that the transfer speed is much faster and reliable than thewireless speed and requires less configuration steps, but you have to get or make a Crossover cable. On theother hand the Wireless Connection is frees you having to physically connect the computers and limitationson distance based wire length, but takes more configuration steps and is slower by today’s standarts
Steps to Manually Specify an IP Address and Default Gateway
