Both my Laptop and PC have Windows 2000, how do I connect them via the LAN
Posted on 2001-08-11
Ive got a PCMCIA LAN network card for my laptop and
a PCI network card for my PC. Both cards are supported by Windows 2000.
Both machines have a different computer name and both machines have the same Workgroup name. However I still cant connect.
When I check 'My network places' to see which computers are near me. The only that comes up on my laptop is the
laptop computer and not my PC.
In the bottom right hand corner of both machines, I have a computer with a red X and it says 'Local area Connection Network Cable unplugged' but thats not true. I have both ends of the cable inside each network card slot or hole.
Anyone know how to fix this problem im having
