How to connect two computer

Hi Friends, Today I am going to tell you about How to connect two computers using LAN cable.As we usually use Flash USB but sometimes if there is huge amount of data then we can't transfer so this trick will help you to connect two computers using LAN cable and transfer your huge amount of data.


 LAN Cable or cross-over cable (Cable which use in DSL)

1) Plug in the cable with two computers.

2) In order to start the connection, you’ll have to assign different IP address for both computers. To change the IP address of your computers for the LAN connection, you should make changes in the LAN adapter settings.

§  Open Control panel from the start menu and click on Network and Internet and click on Network and Sharing center.
§  From the left sidebar, click on Change adapter settings.

§  Under the Network connections window select the appropriate icon for your LAN adapter and right-click on it, then choose Properties.

§  Local Area Connection Properties box appears.

§  Under the Network tab select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and click on the Properties button.
§  Now set the addresses as mentioned below in each computer and click OK.
At the first computer ( say, Computer 1):
IP address:
Subnet mask:
At the second computer ( say, Computer 2):
IP address:
Subnet mask:
3) Share folder , file or Driver from computer with other computer .Click on file or folder or driver and then select share with and click on computer name which you want to share.

 4) You are almost done.. Just Goto Computer and then click on Network Icon.
if you don't turn on file sharing then you will see look like this
turn on it by clicking on Trun on network discovery and file sharing.

finally you will see the share folders,files and drivers of other computer and use them.

You can also use software instead of using step 4 and this software very easy to use.
