I tried this before but never actually went through with it at the time. Local shops are having great deals once again on computer parts and cases so figure it is a good enough time to update my 2nd pc.
Question I have for you all, is if I get a crossover cable and connect my two PC's together, file transfer speeds should be the quickest comparing to running through the network or USB right?
If yes ... Can my PC connect to the normal network by LAN and thus the internet without loosing connectivity to the 2nd PC?
Like this ...
Onboard LAN on mobo - > always stays connected to home router and internet only
2nd network card in PCI slot - > Connected by crossover to 2nd pc
Both machines are running Windows 7. Are those two simulations connections possible?
