Hello,

I am connecting my laptop and desktop using a straight LAN cable but connection is not getting established. I have already changed workgroup names and using IP addresses 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.2
Suggest me please.
Thanks in advance.

A "crossover" cable is normally required when connecting two computers directly.

Good Luck
