I am wanting to connect two computers. I am using a crossover cable to connect the two computers. None of the computers recognize each other. It says there is not a cable plugged in. So I ran network setup wizard on each of em. Correctly configured both computers and they both don't recognize each other.
Than I found out that the local area connection on each computers were set to automatically obtain an IP address. So I give each computer an IP address. 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2.
What I am wondering is what do I put in as the default gateway.
Oh yeah, I am connecting the internet to the ethernet port on my mother board. The internet is working fine.
And I have the ICS computer using a NIC to connect to the other computers Ethernet port on the other computer.
Here is a pic if that doesnt explain very well.
I am using the same cable used to connect a PC to a Cable modem.
