Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

To connect to ‘like’ devices together you need a cross-over cable. Many network adaptors do not do the cross over automatically, the switch usually does this (if capable).

Try a cross-over, and report back here if you still have a problem.

    Is this network a workgroup or domain? When you say there is no communication between the 2 computers what are you trying to do share files, ping, please more information is needed. It could possibly be something as simple as joining the 2 computers to a workgroup or domain.
