Re: Getting two PC's to talk to each other
If I understand you correctly you have an onboard NIC that is connected to your cutting machine on both PC's. Then you bought another NIC and put it in the PCI slot on both computers and connected those cards to one another.
Have you installed the drivers for the second card?
When you look in device manager does it show up with no faults (no question marks)?
Are you sure your cable works? Have you tried another cable?
Also make sure when you are setting up the two (ones connecting the PC's together) make sure they have different IPs, the same default gateway, and are on the same subnet.
