Hello
I have 2 computers
The first:
Laptop with win2k pro,
Under Network and Dailup Connection:
Some internet accounts, Local Area Connection.
192.168.0.1

The second:
A desktop with win2k pro,
Under network and dail up connection on, I have Make New Connection, and Local Area Connection 3
192.168.0.2

Using a crossover cable to connect them. The icon on both of them shows the status being connected on 100Mbps, both subnets are 255.255.255.0
User accounts are ok, both on the same Workgroup

Now each computer sees itself but not the other. And when they see each other, the transfer is v…….e…….r……y  slow

Thanks for helping.

hi,
- look in the network card settings if your dublex mode is set to auto (right click my network places -> properties -> right click your lan connection -> properties ->  configure -> advanced -> dublecxmode (it should be on both set to 100 MBit Full, or Auto)
- look if a firewall blocks the connection
- also configure on both pc as default gateway the other pc in the workgroup
- check if your third Local Area Connection is used for you peer to peer network

 Hello,
  Have you installed NetBEUI protocol? In the past, I have a similar problem like you. My computers can't see each other (ping not reply), but after I install NetBEUI, everything is OK. Maybe this is the case.

if you tried what merowinger has said and still not ready. Try checking your crossover cable.

here is what I did, it is fixed but I don't know why and how.
I shutdown both boxes, restarted both again. gave adimn password and left them for 1 hr. came back and both are connecting up to speed no problem. I did not do any thing different than what I did before execpt to leave them that long to merry-up.

I did not do merowinger  suggesgtions yet, would be interesting to know, but sine the desttop is runing linux not, and my long in to the lap top would not allow me admin access. I will leave it at that, thanks
I will ask to paq and refund if no objections from any body.
