I am connecting 2 PCs via crossover cable connecting via the ethernet ports. Primarily for gaming. One of the PCs has broadband access.Will the 2nd PC be able to access the internet via the LAN?Will the 2nd PC be able to print through a printer connected to the other PC?What other access to programs/files can I expect?Appreciate that wireless/router a better option but strapped for cash at present. Thanks
access internet = yesprinter sharing = yesaccess to files is whatever you share.It will work the same as any network does.
