robo989 Posted August 13, 2005 Posted August 13, 2005 Hi, I have absolutely no knowledge on netoworking anything whatsoever, but I learn stuff quick... Just curious what I need to network the 2 motherboards, they both got Gigabit lan cards built in haven't they? So just need to know what cables I need, people have mentioned "Cat5" cable, but how does that actually connect to the network ports, as I understand the cable is just sold as is? Is there a simply say 20m cable that I can use with a male connector each end, just plug it in and set it up? Whats the procedure to get it recognised, do I need to be running the same version of windows on each end? Can I do things like delegate tasks to the computer on the other end, can I share a dialup modem connection on the 2 systems? I'm not that bothered about the other questions, just really like to know what cables I need... (I'm after playing some Unreal Tournament and C&C generals over it) thanks, Rob Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
