Hi All,

Very soon I'm moving to a new place and there I need to connect my 2 PC's together, but now the distance is more then 10 meters.
Previously I had a cross over link with 2 NIC from 3Com .... Was working very wel.....

But now, what do I have to do? HUB?? Router?? Switch??

Whitch brand??

For only 2 computers u don't need any swith or hub ( over 180 meters only ! ) . I simply recommend a local area network builted with 2 Realtek RTL8029(AS) PCI cards ( 10mb/s) .

I bought once a cross over cable of 25 m for testing and that didn't worked!! :( Cable was tested and found OK

When I then went back to the old cable (5 m ), everything was OK?

But now I need at least a cable of 10-15 m.....

On the cable is CAT 5 written, is this helping You?

Crossover should still work. Make sure you are not running it too close to any electrical interferance. If you want to share internet as well as file pick yourself up a router that has a switch built into it.

BNC connections are used for coax networks. Usually in token rings. Thjere is not a crossover coax cable.

You recommend BNC?? BNC is stone age man. Don't use it unless you really have to. Ever.

Johnny: My guess is the 25 was faulty in some way anyway. Cross-over should work up to the CAT-5 180-200 meter limit somewhere. I have seen 20m cross-over working at least.

You should keep an eye on that 5 yr old. :) Didn't he/she allready (probably) destroy the BNC cable you had before?
