Hi this is a really dumb question, but...
I want to do ICS w/ my desktop and laptop. I put in a 2nd NIC in the desktop, my question is: Do I need a crossover cable to hook up the desktop and laptop NIC's together or a straight-through cable?

Thanks!!!

yez you need it. to do this just simply change colour code : this is the original colour code for the calbe : white-green,green,white-orange,blue,white-blue,orange,white-brown,brown. and the other site of the cable you have to use this color code : white-orange,orange,white-green,white-blue,blue,green,brown,white-brown.

remember you keep both the connectors the same way!

this is what I did...

I have a computer that is running windows 2k server (witch is my server) and one that running windows XP pro... I have my server set up as a DNS, DHCP, NAT, Router... I'm using a cross over cable... don't much like the ICS... but thats just me :D

Theres really no point in my story, I had a little to much to drink.. heheheh :D
