I have a network card and my pc is suppose to be setup for LAN connections. My buddie stoped by with his laptop and LAN cable. we messed around in network settings but we couldnt figure anything out? How can i simply setup my computer as a host (my pc connects to the net) so we can share files and play some games together on LAN.

Thanks,
Jordan

Firstly what is the cable you are trying to use? Is it a crossover or patch? Without a router/switch you will need to use a crossover as patch cables have different wire configurations which mean the two cards can't communicate directly.

And also make sure you are on the same Workgroup as he is.
