Connect Two Laptops With Ethernet Cable

Connecting two laptops via ethernet cable is troublesome. I tried creating homegroup, it got connected in laptop with win7(ultimate) but in win7(home basic), it asks for enabling ipv6 protocol ( but when i go for enabling it, it is not happening). When should i do? Can i connect them via bluetooth and transfer my data through?

Answer:- more then likely you will use to computer requires a crossover cable to connect the two. Not the more common straight through. I would user a network router. Or if you already have one then look into a switch (home routers should have switches built it).

Phone Cable To Ethernet

A few months ago i went to my friends house and he got a xbox 360. He got a phone jack and his room so he got this cable that he put in the jack and to the back of his xbox. And we got on xbox live. It couldn't be dial up cause xbox live doesn't have dail up jack on the back of it. And it looked like a cat 5 cable cause it was thick yellow cable. I just want to know what was it cause i got a phone jack in my room and i don't want to buy a new adsl modem cause i don't have the money. Cause my internet provider doesn't give new modems they give used ones that drop connection all the time. I know it is the modem cause i called them to my house like 10 times. But that is not what i am asking. I just want to know what was he using and can i get one. I know he doesn't know cause cause he is 12 years old and i am 13 years old. So asking him is out of the question. Also it cant be dial up cause we kept really good connection. And the phone be ringing and we didn't loose connection.

Router Or Ethernet Cable Problem?

Just got an asus rt-n13u wireless n router. It's been great so far, however, except on this problem i found. Here is the situation: i connected two pc's on lan port 1 and 2. Pc1 @lan port 1 - uses the ethernet cable that came with the package - about 1m of length (does anyone know if its a cat5, cat5e, or cat6?). Pc2 @lan port 2 - uses a 5m cat5e patch cord. The problem is when i turn on pc2, it never connects thru the router - no lights at all, no internet access either - but the wireless, other ports are working. I have to replug/reconnect it again so it will work. I really find it very strange since it perfectly works with lan port 1 and 4 without hiccups. To make the story much more complicated, i tried using the ethernet cable that came with the package @ pc2 - to my surprise, all ports worked. Is the router faulty? Or is it ethernet cable? Ip conflict? What type of cable should i use (cat5, cat5e, cat6)? I'm leaning towards the idea that the ethernet cable is faulty but want to hear from experts prior to sending it back.

Xbox Live, Ethernet Cable Would Work?

Xbox question help? Im planning to buy the xbox live and the problem is that my xbox 360 is in the living room and the router is in my room(apartment) so i don't feel like wasting 100 dollars on the wireless adapter for the 360 . Now, i looked at my ethernet cables and the one included with the package is not enough to connect them. The one that could work is if i buy the 25-50 ft long ones for around 20 dollars or so. Now my question is if any kind of ethernet cable would work?

These are some of the cables i looked at :

Connect Two Laptops To One Printer

How can i connect two laptops to one printer?

Answer:- set up the printer on one laptop. You will need to connect the printer to the laptop and follow all required installation steps to get the printer working on the first laptop before you can continue. Share the printer on the laptop. This is often done by right-clicking on the printer after you have installed it and selecting "properties. " Depending on your computer, printer and operating system, the location of the sharing option will differ. Inside the properties of the printer, there should be a checkbox that will allow you to share the printer. Plug in the network hub. You do not need a complex network hub; a simple, inexpensive four-port hub will work. Plug the two laptops into the network hub. Be sure that you do not use the "uplink" or "internet" jack on the hub-use any other two ports on the hub. The other end of the cables will need to be plugged into the laptop computers. On the second laptop, add a network printer. Unless your laptop has already been configured to be on a different network, the laptops will use the hub to communicate. When you attempt to install a network printer on the second laptop, it will scan the network and will find the printer that you shared. Now you will then be able to use the printer from either laptop.

Connect Computer Directly To Ethernet In Vista

How do you connect a computer with vista directly to ethernet? So ive been using windows xp forever, and my cousin gave me a computer with vista on it. How do i connect it directly to ethernet, when i go to network and sharing center, i click on set up a connection or network. I get 5 different options, connect to the internet which has two sub categories, connect to a wireless network or dialup, the next option is set up a wireless router or access point. The next is manually connect to a wireless network, the next is set up a wireless ad hoc, and the last is set up a dial up connection. None of these when clicked on lead me to believe i can set up a direct ethernet hook up from the modem to the computer. Anyone know how to do this on vista?

Connect Local Area Network ( Ethernet ) With Wan

Can we connect a local area network (ethernet) with wan? Suppose we want to connect a local area network (ethernet) with a wide area network, the question arises is, can we connect a local area network with wide area network?

If we directly connect the lan segment to the packet switch of the wide area network, then obviously every signal on the segment will be forwarded to the switch, to prevent this, can be use a bridge to connect this segment to the network switch (because bridge will only forward the packets if necessary)?

Another question arises is, every wan technology uses a specified frame format, suppose the wan is using a frame format that is different from ethernet frame format then what we will do?

Connect Pc To Tv Using Vga Cable

How do i connect my pc to a tv using a vga cable ?

There are vga to tv converters (svga cables(*) are only usable if ur computer has a svga-out (*), and i believe (only 90 percent sure) they don't carry high def video) but they are rather expensive:

Try aiming for hdmi when u buy a new device. Hdmi is a great connective system, it carries both hd-video and sound and is easily switchable by using a hdmi-switch. Hdmi is also used in all types of modern home-entertainment appliances and also in computers and monitors so it's the best (wired) connectivity system available today.correction: svga is a video-standard, not a connectivity standard. Sometimes svga is confused with s-video. S-video is a connectivity standard (cable) that only carries normal density video just like for instance scart:


The only high definition connectors a comp can have for as far as i know are:
- Vga-out
- Dvi-out

This might be a cool solution if u have a hd-tv with hdmi in, see the video:

Although u would need to find a way to keep using ur monitor, if u would want to do that, like a vga splitter or something. Or just buy a new monitor because those converters and cables and stuff are quite costly. Or upgrade ur graphical card to have 2 dvi outputs (there are cheaper dvi to hdmi adapters) (*) should be s-video.
