computer. For instance, first computer's IP: 192.168.0.1 second computer's 192.168.0.2.

Now we can connect computers.

We need to connect computers with network cable. Connect network cable to LAN ports of network cards on both
computers.

Restart both computers if needed. Now you made network between two computers.

Note! Usually you don't need to enter IP Addresses and you don't need to restart computers to make network connection.
XP is capable to detect network connection automatically and assign IP addresses automatically. All you have to do is to
connect network cable.

That is one of the most elaborate guides I've seen so far. But I have a query.. There are two workgroups listed on
my Network. One is named WORKGROUP and the other is named MSHOME. Can I access the files that are present
on the other workgroup?

@ahmed m saleem :

"more than two computers like suppose 50"

The basic principal stays the same. Simply make sure that all 50 odd computers are connected on a network (via
switches, hubs etc.) and then simply assign a different IP Address to each machine. (This is the manual way if you
do not have a DHCP server present). Just make sure that they are all on the same Subnet Mask.

@ynaught :

"ok what about if i only had a(one) connection and its already connecting to the internet...by the way its a destop
thats already connected to the router"

You would simply have to plug in your second machine into your router, and assign it a similiar, but different IP
address than your main computer eg. Main PC IP : 192.168.0.1, then your second IP would be 192.168.0.2 and so
forth. If you set you Second PC's Default Gateway and DNS to the IP of your first, already connected, PC; you'll get
internet on the second one as well.
