I am trying to network a Mac and a PC.  They are both connecting to the internet wirelessly.

I have bought a crossover ethernet cable to connect directly between the two.  I cannot seem to make the connection.  The PC is telling me that the network cable is unplugged - i know its not!

Can anyone help on this please.
Kind regards
