I am having a hard time networking two XP HP computers. I use my router but it keeps assigning them the same IP's and there is an error. They both have firewire ports and i'm hoping that i can just get a 5 dollar cable from BB or something and it will allow me to transfer 18 gigs of music and DIVX's. Is there anything i need to know (like will it even work). I am not very knowledgable on networking, i thought hooking up both computers with CAT5E to both ethernets would network them together...turns out it isn't that easy. Is firewire (or are there any other suggestions?)?
No announcement yet.
explain to me firewire please
