Hi, I have PC-A (Vista) wired to modem/wireless-router, PC-B(Windows 7 Pro) wireless connection via USB adapter, and PC-C(Windows 7 Pro) that I want to wire thru ethernet.
Internet access OK on A & B, not required on C. I Just want to share files between B & C.
1st question: Do I need a crossover wire between B and C?
2nd question: PC-B already has a homegroup with internet access. When I tried to join that homegroup with PC-C, I lost Internet access on B and got multiple network, could not join. I had to restart both PCs to regain access. What did I do wrong?
In short, I just want to share files between PC-B & PC-C via ethernet, internet access not required. I visited a dozen links on your forums but could not find a solution.
