I have a computer down stairs (XP) and one upstairs (98). So for the time begin, I have given up on my router (which is in another thread.click here) and just want a peer to peer for the time being.

I've run the network wizard on the XP machine, and it copyed a few files to disk, and i run that on my 98 machine. But niether machine will detect one another. The XP machine does't even register a connection. As far as its goes, there is no cable pluged in.

Any idears?

It need to be a crossover cable or have an adapter on it. The one with the router connection would be straight through.

ahh. well the cable i've got is 25 meters long and running under the floor, up into the roof. so replaying it is not realy an option. Where can i get an adapter from?
