  1. How do you connect 2 PC's together?

    Thanks but I am going to get Microsoft support involved because having tried every possible solution shown here, I discovered I don't even have the Microsoft Hosted Network Virtual Adapter which is obviously required.
  2. How do you connect 2 PC's together?

    Right, I uninstalled all Killer apps and remarkably my Wi-Fi connection still works. Unfortunately, as I suspected, I still have no support for hosted networks and of course, when I try to open the folders on the slave PC the connection is refused. Checking the Ethernet connection properties in...
  3. How do you connect 2 PC's together?

    Guys, because my machine is protected by Macrium Reflect, I'm willing to give uninstallation of the Killer suite a go. Call me negative but I doubt it will make any difference. Don't forget, Windows reports no support for a hosted network and that will automatically be solved just by...
  4. How do you connect 2 PC's together?

    Yes, but like I showed in my screenshot, support for a locally hosted network on this machine is not available. Somehow, I need to change that.
  5. How do you connect 2 PC's together?

    I may be way off the mark here because I'm just exploring possibilities based on the fact that my PC doesn't have network support which is something I find very odd for a machine of this caliber. Anyway, using Nigel's tutorial, I checked the properties of the Wi-Fi adapter. There was no 'Sharing...
  6. How do you connect 2 PC's together?

    Yes, I just noticed that. Looks like I will be waiting for the forthcoming update until they put me in my grave. ;) We did uninstall the Killer app and driver then reinstall both the latest stable version and the beta. The stable version (KillerPerformanceSuite_2.4.1549_UWD_x64) is what I...
  7. How do you connect 2 PC's together?

    Hi Nigel, I have the crossover Ethernet cable and what you are suggesting is precisely what I wanted to do but following the instructions in the link you provided shows me I can't do it. Not just because Windows won't allow it but also because I discovered today that following a recent Windows...
  8. How do you connect 2 PC's together?

    Yeah, you have misunderstood me Denis. I do not have a server here. I own several web sites for which I pay hosting. I maintain my sites locally and then use FileZilla to upload any changes. The hosting account I have provides up to 500 Gb of space so upping my files to then download them to the...
  9. How do you connect 2 PC's together?

    I will have to look into that John. First off, I will try Denis' last suggestion tomorrow because clearly a local network is still the best solution.
  10. How do you connect 2 PC's together?

    That's how I've been running up until now. I just open FileZilla and transfer the day's files to my server and then do the same on the other machine to download them. It takes about 10 to 15 mins whereas if the 2 were connected I could just copy and paste between them. Of course, another...
  11. How do you connect 2 PC's together?

    I've just had a thought or perhaps I should say a dream. Is there such a thing as a hub which would allow 2 PC's to connect to an external HDD at the same time?
  12. How do you connect 2 PC's together?

    I spent the last couple of hours attempting to follow the instructions given on another forum in respect of the Livebox (it wasn't possible to find a proper user manual for the Orange Livebox 5, we only found the initial setup manual). Regretfully, we got no further than before because the...
  13. How do you connect 2 PC's together?

    It's too complicated for me Denis. Because it talks about 2 old operating systems, especially XP, I am having great difficulty understanding it. What I need is a step-by-step tutorial based on Win 10. But you have piqued my interest with your talk about a router. I always thought that our...
  14. How do you connect 2 PC's together?

    My son is sitting next to me trying to assist with getting this working. Like me, he is frustrated by certain things. As an example, when I click on the drive I wish to share and then select Give access to: I am supposed to see several options that include the Homegroup but these options are not...
  15. How do you connect 2 PC's together?

    The IP given using your example is completely different to the IP that shows when using the ipconfig command. If I remember correctly, in the good old days of Win 7, you only needed to change from DCHP to manual and then enter the ipv4 address with a difference of 1 between the 2 machines. For...
