First off you need a crossover cable, use that to connect the Ethernet ports between the two computers
From there you need to go to Control Panel > Network Connections > Local Area Connection (make sure this is enabled) From there windows should auto detect an active connection and establish sharing automatically.

What kind of cable are you using? are you using a standard network cable or are you using a network cable of the crossover type (the pins on the ends of the cable should not match each other)

A Link cable that is meant to connect the Original Xbox is a crossover.

Plus are the internet connections enabled one both PC's? in Windows and the BIOS? If you can answer yes to all those questions including having the crossover cable I would say either the cable is damaged or one of the ports...your best be would be to get another crossover cable if you can.

That picture doesn't help, I need to see both ends, and it would be the wires under the pins that are switched, they are color coded. You should be able to tell...just look and see if each end is identical

That means that it is what we in the networking business call a strait-thru cable (the data goes in and exits the same pin)



What you nedd is a crossover cable.
These are what crossover cables are, pins are swapped, it is possible to make them if you have the right tool, otherwise you will have to go to your local PC store to buy one, or you can buy an Xbox link cable...
