3. Select USE THE FOLLOWING IP ADDRESS..then input an ip address of your choice..eg 192.168.1.10 and 192.168.1.11 on the other PC.
This shud work as far as I can remember..did this few years ago..
^That should work. But in windows 8 pc you'll have to set network to private.
Get a CAT5/5E cable both with RJ45 at both ends!
Open network & sharing center/go to network adapters. Make sure drivers are installed.
go to properties.
Set IPv4 to manual. Then put the values 192.168.0.1 in one pc & 192.168.0.2 in other.
Just click on the subnet mask! save it.
change sharing settings. connect wires. u r good.
u can check the connection by using ping<space>Ip in command prompt
