Ways of combining two computers on the same network are many, ranging from wire and wifi-finishing modules.
Please use the cheapest method for cost.
To combine the two into a single network of stationary computer, you must: Buy or make a crossover cable and make some network configuration settings in the operating system.
Purchase a crossover cable
Buy a crossover cable (it is calledpatch cord "reverse") can be virtually any specialty store, engaged in the sale of equipment for creating computer networks. There's also a patch cord can make in your presence that length that you need. In addition to specialty stores, these jumpers are often found in conventional computer stores.
When buying look at the plug(Connectors) cable, or rather, on the conductor wires inside these connectors. The color sequence of wire cords on one side should be as follows: orange and white, orange, green, white, blue, blue-white, green, brown and white, brown. On the other side of the cable: green and white, green, orange, white, blue, blue and white, orange, brown and white, brown. This is a very important point, and if you will be given "direct" patch cords, ie, color sequence of the wires on both sides is the same, then connect the two computers will not work without the purchase of additional equipment.
Acquired patch cords, insert the plugs network card system blocks.
Setting up the network configuration of operating systems
Make the setting of the first computer. Run "Start - Control Panel - Network Management and Sharing Center - Change adapter settings" (for Windows 7 and 8).
In the "Local Area Connection", right clickselect "Properties" and click on the shortcut menu. In the resulting window, stand on the "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP / IPv4)» and click "Properties".
On the "General" tab, select "Use the following IP-address:". Fill activate the field: «IP-address:" - 192.168.0.1- "Subnet Mask:" - 255.255.255.0.
Run "Start - Control Panel - System". In the block "Computer name, domain, and workgroup settings," click "Edit settings." In the "Computer Name", click "Edit". In the "Computer Name" using letters and numbers, write the name of the first computer. For example, Comp1.
Repeat the same steps with the second computer, just add another "the IP-Address" and "Computer Name". For example, 192.168.0.2 and Comp2.
