I have 2 home computers and have tried to network the two so I can share internet. I have 2 adaptor cards in one computer and one card in the other. All cards work and they are connected using a twisted cable. My problem is I can't set it up in Windows98. I need instructions from scratch. I've tried everything but the help in Windows98 refers to a number of networking instructions and I don't know which one to try. Any suggestions.

Skiwi2,

First I assume that your looking for how to set up file sharing and not logging into the internet:

If so, go to the control panel in each of your computers and open up the networking icon.  Make sure both computers are set up for TCP/IP protocal. You need to set up each as a client for MS networks.  Then click the box for file and print sharing.  There are 2 different box options, check what you need.  Then hit the access control tab and choose the control you want.  You may wish to password protect what you want to share between them (depending on yur firewall).  Then you will need to reboot(may ask for system disc).  After that it is a a simple step of right clicking on each of the files (or drives)and printers you want to share between the two, and setting them up as shared.  You need to do this on each networked computer.

Good luck.

"All cards work and they are connected using a twisted

Is it a crossover cable or a regular cat5 UTP
without a hub it has to be a crossover cable
