Via Windows 10:
I have two PC that are connected, wirelessly, to my internet modem/router, via 10 dot class of IP addresses. No problems there.
I also have an Ethernet cable connected directly between the two PCs.
I would like to map a network drive between the two PCs, by way of the Ethernet cable, which will give me very good speed between the two PCs.
I have not been able to figure out how to configure Windows for the two PCs to see each other via the Ethernet cable.
Running “ipconfig” at the command prompt shows “Media disconnected” for the Ethernet adapter (which is built into the motherboard).
How do I set up the wired Ethernet section of the PCs?
I went through Control Panel’s Networking section. No matter what I tried, I have been unsuccessful.
My goal is that once this is set up, I would like to map a network drive, via the wired connection, between the two PCs.
Note that there is no hub or switch involved, and no crossover cable.
This should, however, still work (I have done this before, but I cannot remember what I did).
Old computers need a crossover cable. But this motherboard is new, and should not need one.
