    Hello ,

    Read the Guide here :

    Scroll down to this bit "Now That you have your cabling set up, lets configure the PCs. Windows XP PCs use the TCP/IP Protocol for file sharing, as well as internet access." as the first half of the guides is over the top and rambles on like a cisco site.

    Install each Network card in the PC's - plug the cable in and follow the guide.

    If you have any problems , post and i will try to help
