1st step:Install lan driver in both laptops or computer from there own mother board cd.
2nd step:Connect both laptop vis lan wire.
3rd step:Goto startmenu--->Control Panel--->Network Connections.there is a item whose name Local Area Connection
4th step: Right click on Local Area properties from menu.
5th step:select General tab,see there is a level name by "The connection uses the following item :".scroll and select Iternet protocol (TCP/IP) and press properties button
6th step:Select Use the following IP address,put ther IP address.its like address) and subnet mask is and press ok.after thene press close button.

Assuming you want the desktop to be server, assign an ip like and also use it at default gateway, subnet can be Now in win 7 laptop network center use another ip and gateway of 1st pc). If your cable is good and lan card working on both sides then this should make both connect without any problems. try pinging each ther's ip's to be sure.
