im sure you have all came across the before, but im a newbie to the whole networking side of computers.
what it is i have 2 computers 1 on winXP and the other on win2000.
on this machine (winXP) i have on-board nvidia network controller. on my 2000 machine i have (as shown in device manager) " 3com etherlink xl 10/100 pci tx nic (3c905b-tx) "
i bought a BELKIN CAT6 Networking Cable - Premium Snagless Patch Cable, i plugged it into both computers and proceeded to run the network setup wizard on my XP machine.
no matter what i have tried, reinstalling hardware, software betweenthen and now i have constantly recieve the message "a network cable is unplugged".
even when i tried to ignore the messege and carry on with the wizard, it asked me to create a wizard setup disk to install on any machine toi be connected to the LAN not on winXP (that would be my win2000 machine) but no, the disk is designed for every other OS but win2000 it tells me when i tried to run it.
can someone please put me out of my misery!
