You need a special "crossover" LAN cable - standard LAN (CAT-5) cables are made to plug-in to a router.

1) Plug-in your cable to both PCs
2) startup 1st pc's AoE as host and ONLY THEN startup 2nd pc as client

DONT DO ANY IP CHANGES!!! Windows automatically assigns you addresses of homespace that start with 169.x.x.x

You can also check out this article that shows you how to connect two computers directly by using crossover cable.

u have network cable it must a cross over cable.i must have a network and the second one will take network from the other laptop it will config it self.

You all are perfectly right but there is another thing you must tell the user that if you are connecting a two laptops ,then in many laptops only modem connection is given and not lan connection so therefore to connect two modem so that we can play multiplayer games and can do data transfer ,you must need a cross lan wire instead of parallel lan wire

my name is not i'm having a problem actually I don't classify it as a massive constraint.So my point of interest is I want to know if windows can share files or printers without connecting to the lan.the reason im arising this point is I heard some guys discussing this issue so please put me in the picture.I dont have a problem with my mandriva linux and suse linux interprise.
