networking question

ok, so i have a regular desktop that runs XP, and is connected to the ethernet at my school. i have two ethernet cards connected to my desktop right now. i also have a laptop(win 98 se), and a crossover cable. is there anyway i could have internet access on both my desktop and laptop, without buying a hub?

Re: networking question

If you already have them connected with the crossover cable, all you should need to do is turn on internet connection sharing in the windows XP machine.

that's what i thought...i have the internet working on my desktop, but it won't work on my laptop. the laptop does have internet access, but only if i do a direct connection, which i can't always do
