in your My Network places, right click on the local area network icon select properties, internet protocol(tcp/ip) and finally click on ip address and assign an IP like and the subnet mask to

repeat the same procedure with the other computer but assign another IP address like the subnet mask stays the same.

after wards open command prompt and then type in this command from any one of the two coputers :


you should get some some results and if no packets are lost then the connection is sucessful.

hope it helps you

same IP address to both comps but d last digit will be changed. for eg 1st pc- 2nd pc-
& change the name of both pc's ( right click on my comp->properties->computername n click on change button)
