    how do you have both computers hooked to the net as i have both of mine thru a hub than a 1 port router before going into the cable modem. i just have to setup for file sharing on both computer in network neighborhood to share files. i'm using 1 net card each & done the same for about 6 systems

    ok, you don't need the extra net card in each computer currently used to share info between each other as the cards that go onto the net can do the same thing as i've done before. you just set up the 2 internet cards the same as you have done with the sharing cards than can take out those extra cards
