Network 2 PC's

  bgrave 12:40 03 Jul 06

I have two PC's one old and a new one, the older one has XP-Pro and the new one XP-Home, both PC's have a LAN socket. I would like to transfer files from the old one to the new. In the days of Win ME I used to do this from desk top to Lap top an I cannot remember how I done it. I still have two similar cables one is blue and the other is yellow and I seem to recollect this was critical, can you help me on this please.

Check the ends of your cables and make sure you have a crossover cable click here

couple the two machines together and run the network connection wizard on one machine, make a disk and run the disk in the other machine.
