Problem with new cable network...
Hi, i've currently got 2 comps in my house. One has the internet, and the other one runs off a wireless (ad-hoc/peer-to-peer) 11mbps network so it could also have the internet. This week i decided to scrap the wireless, and i ordered 15m of 'cat5e booted utp patch cable' along with a 100mbps pci ethernet adaptor. The other comp has an integrated lan port so i didn't need to buy 2 of them. I got them both installed, and they are displayed in 'network connections' on each computer, but they both have a red x on the icon, and underneathe it says 'network cable is unplugged' even when i have plugged them in. I have tried everything, unplugging and plugging them in, re instaling them, downloading drivers from net, but no matter what i've tried, the red x just stays there. Its so annoying! I've spent money on this stuff n i intend to use it! I hope somebody can help me...Thanks!
