I've made A crossover cable out of A old cat5 ethnal cable,what I did was took some of the pvc outer sleeving off, enough to exposs the wires and snipped the green, orange ,orange and white stripped and green and white stripped wires,then I bridged orange with green from one side to another and the other orange and green from the other side to another.
Then I bridged the white striped orange with the green stripped white. And the other orange stripped white to one another and the other green striped white to orange stripped white.
Have I sussessfully made A cross over cable?????
Then, I connected the cross over cable to the ethnal port of both the pcs I want to share files between and went to create home networkgroup in networks In windows 7,picked home network,It loaded choose what files I wanted to share,printers,Documents etc.Then It gave me a pass code,I wrote It down and went to my other computer,Clicked on homegroup In networks and was looking to join my existing network I just created on my other computer by typing in the pass code I wrote down,but instead of It saying joine network It said create network?
I'm stuck and I don't know If I'm missing anything,can anyone help out please?
