I wasn't trying to correct you, I was adding.
Because if he doesn't have a NIC that auto-senses or a crossover cable, then there is no way that would work.

We ended up putting my other wireless card in his PC and connecting through my wireless router.

I still don't know why the LAN ports wouldn't find each other. Is there something I can enable or something?

Either the cable got messed up, or you'r mistakes and its not the "crossed" cable. I've used a "crossed" cable before and LAN was easy as hell..

I don't know what kind of cable it is (this 'crossed' ya'll are talking about or regular) but I do know it works. I have it on my spare PC it connects my printer, it does work, just not with MY lan,LOL.

It's all good, we got it one way or the other,lol.

To connect two computers together without a switch, you need a crossover cable. A straight cable is only used when you connect your PC to a switch.

Ok cool. I get that now, so how can you tell a crossover cable from a straight cable?

Crossover cable's are special cables and usually they are identified as crossover. I would say 90% of cables purchased in the store are straight through. They just have a different twisting pattern with an identifiable "cross-over" pattern when comparing the two ends.

Grab both ends of the cable, side by side, by the connectors, and look at the wire colors.

If the colors of each of the wires are in the same order exactly on both sides, it's a straight cable... if some of the middle wires do not correspond, it'll be a crossover.. that's the easiest way to do it, eyeballing it.

Crossover cable:
One side of the cable needs to be:
White/green, green, w/blue, blue, orange, w/brown, brown

The other side needs to be:
White/orange, orange, w/green, blue, w/blue, green, w/brown, brown.
