I used to believe that to connect two PCs we have to use crossover cable (since they are similar devices).

Today 9-05-2006 I figured out that the straight through cable is working as well.

Any clarification about this ?

I assigned ip address of type 192.168.5.1/24 and 192.168.5.5/24.

And I tried also ip 200.211.100.30/24 and 200.211.100.31/24

Note:

1- Laptop NIC is : Broadcom 570x Gigabit Integrated Controller.

2- Desktop NIC#1 is : Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Desktop Connection.

3- Desktop NIC#2 is : D-Link DFE-528TX PCI Adapter


Note:
I connected between Broadcom 570x Gigabit Integrated Controller and Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Desktop Connection.

And then i have connected between Broadcom 570x Gigabit Integrated Controller and D-Link DFE-528TX PCI Adapter
