Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago

The ethernet cable is not connected to the 7 pro as I am using it for the internet. When I tried connecting with the ethernet crossover cable neither computer would connect using the easy transfer

Network Technician: Satchi, Computer Support Specialist replied 8 years ago
If you want to do easy transfer then you need Easy transfer cable not the ethernet one
Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
really did not want to use easy transfer but tried that to get the two computers working together. Did not work with ethernet cable. Just wasted lots of time. Really want to network the two computers: xp home and Win7 Pro 64. Googled a lot and understood a network could be set up using the crossover cable but I was unable to get the network working! Then tried the easy transfer. Ok......back to the original problem: Can my two computers be networked using the etherntet crossover cable??
Network Technician: Satchi, Computer Support Specialist replied 8 years ago
Yes first connect the cable to both computer and tell me the LAN ip address on both ?

Hello

 

I am one of the other experts here on just answer.com

 

I have a couple of questions

 

1) I see you want to network the computers through a crossover cable do either of the computers have two network cards in them ?

 

2) Are you planning on both computers being connected to the internet?

 

3) What are you looking to share between the computers?

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago

Neither computer has two network cards:

Share downloads, data ,and usb HDD's

7 PRO 64 needs to connect to internet when NOT networked with the XP

7 PRO not needed to connect to internet and wetworked computer at the same time.

 

Win 7 Pro 64 to be connected to internet via cat5 ethernet cable. Using this now.

When 7 not wired to internet, the cat5 ethernet cable to be disconnected and the cat5 ethernet crossover from the XP home 32 connected.

 

Wish to leave crossover cable connected to the xp all the time.

 

Remove cat5 from the 7 PRO and insert crossover only when using computers networked, none connected to internet at this time.

 

You raised a point: two network cards. If the 7 PRO had two cards could the cables remaine connected?

 

I hope I made this clear???

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Did you get my reply above?
Network Technician: Omer, Network Administrator replied 8 years ago

Hi Sorry it took me a while to type this out had to double check the windows

 

Thank you for your response yes you made it clearer.

 

My concern is this if the windows 7 doesn't have 2 network cards you will have to always type in the settings for the crossover cable though this isn't a huge issue.

 

Basically all you need to do is plug the crossover cable into both machines.

 

Go to your windows XP computer

Go to start right click on my computer

When you see all your drives hit the up arrow in the menu for your top folder view

One of the icons is My Network Places right click on this and select properties

You should see your network adapters right click on yours and select properties

 

In the window that says This connection uses the following protocols click on Internet protocol TCP/IP click the properties button You should see the following

 

graphic

 

On the top part click Use the following IP Address

Computer XP:

IP Address: 10.1.1.1
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway:
DNS Servers:

 

Now On the Windows 7 machine

 

Open your Network Sharing Center

Click on Change adapter settings on the left pane

Right Click on your network adapter and select properties

Click In the window that says This connection uses the following protocols click on Internet protocol TCP/IP Version 4 click the properties button You should see the same thing as you did in XP type in the below settings

 

Computer Windows 7:

IP Address: 10.1.1.2
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway:
DNS Servers:

 

With these settings in place you should be able to browse each computer by going to start run and typing in \\ with the corresponding IP address. You may have to share out folders/Drives so that you can access them from the other machines

 

Now when you want to switch the 7 box back to internet you will have to go the network adapter properties and turn it to automatic to get the IP address from your router to get internet.

Ask Your Own Networking Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago

I am back on the internet with 7.

 

changed both Ip addresses as specified

 

on xp: \\10.1.1.2 rhwn tried \\10.1.1.1 Both said "No network provider accepted the given network path"

 

on 7 both .1 and .2 "Windows cannot access \\10.1.1.1 or .2

 

Am not sure what I am doing!

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
How do I proceed?
Network Technician: Omer, Network Administrator replied 8 years ago
so you put 10.1.1.2 in the xp box and 10.1.1.1 in the windows 7


and had the cross over cable plugged in did you have the subnets set as stated above. If you have it set as stated above then on the windows XP box you should be able to hit start run then type in \\10.1.1.1 to give you the connection tot he other box. One other thing you want to check for is to make sure that both computers have their firewalls turned off.

Have hooked up an old Notebook windows ME but could not find you on Just Answer.

So I am back on the 7 to internet.

Hi Stan Sorry I was away from my computer for a bit in a meeting.

 

Just want to make sure i understand what you mean

 

So when you hooked up the two machines and added the ip addresses as stated.

    I was reading over this thread, and I just was wondering.

    Why not just use a 4 port switch to do what you are trying to accomplish?

    Is there a specific reason you do not want the 7PRO PC on the 'net when networked to the XPPRO box?

    Customer reply replied 8 years ago

    I wanted to do it on the cheap! Store said I could network the two computers, with a crossover, and then change the 7 to the internet by reconnecting the cat 5 from the cable co's modem. Microsoft did not make that easy. Lots of twiddling with settings to go back and forth. 7 pro 64, xpsp3home 32. I did look at the 4 port switch at the store but opted for the crossover as it was much cheaper. I guess I'll go back to Radio Shack and start over. They also suggested a Lnksys 1000, or to go wireless with two adapter cards' 7 and xp.

     

    Thanks

     

    Stan

    Network Technician: Mr. Clark, Network Engineer replied 8 years ago
    No problem. I believe that getting a switch or router is a better option and will save you time from switching settings every time you needed to swap the 7PRO box from no net to live net.

    Good luck! Cool

    Great. I cannot let you get away when I believe I am almost done!

     

    I got the 7 printer to work from the xp. Somethings going right!

    Think both can connect.

     

    Just need to be able to set up sharing of files "to and fro" both computers.

     

    How do I set up sharing? How do i "see" the xp from 7 and how do I "see" 7 from xp?

     

    How do I go about importing data files etc from the xp to 7?

     

    I expect to import email to the 7 No rush for this!

     

    I want to keep all my financials on the xp: [off the internet].

     

    I can keep the xp ready to type the \\10.1.1.1

     

    To change I will attach the crossover to the 7 insert the 10.1.1.2 255,255,255,0

    run: \\10.1.1.2 on 7

     

    Sounds easy now but is was quite a trial for me. Still not sure what all this is about.

     

    Thanks for your work.

     

    STAN

     

     

    Network Technician: Omer, Network Administrator replied 8 years ago
    Ok if the printer works crossover is working


    First thing you need to do on each machine is either share out folders or the whole drive.


    You can click on the C Drive of the XP and same in 7 right click select properties turn on sharing give the drive a share name. Usually if you do the whole drive its something like C$ Once sharing is setup on folders or drives you can freely move files between the computers


    So say you have the windows xp with the 10.1.1.1 and 7 with 10.1.1.2 ips programed in if you were on windows xp box you'd click start run \\10.1.1.2\C$ to see the C drive of the windows 7 box, and if you were on the windows 7 box you'd type in \\10.1.1.1\C$ to access the drive on the xp box.

    for the username type in Computername\Username for the computer you are trying to access where computer name is XXXXX XXXXX name of the computer your connecting to and username is XXXXX XXXXX of your login




    then leave the password XXXXX blank you can tell the computer to save this information you don't have to re input it every time.
