Gateway laptop issue

\015 Can I connect a G'way laptop to a G'way laptop to try to access the harddrive in question? I cannot view screen on Lptp #2 and do not have access to supplemental monitor. Will it read it like an external drive?\015

Answers :


Yes, you need to connect the the two laptops using a "Crossover Cable" not a standard network cable. Then you'll need to enter Network via Control Panel and find the link for 'setup a new Network Connection' The network type you want is "Peer to Peer". Once this is done you need to turn on sharing for the folders you choose to share. Right click on each folder you want to share for each laptop and click on sharing. The next window allows you to turn on sharing, with a warning, and give the share a unique name such as Gateway1 My Documents and Gateway2 My Documents.

The crossover cable you need you can find at Radio Shack for about $12. Once you have it, mark each end with a sharpie and write a big X on it which is what we use to identify cross over cables from standard network cables.

If you get stuck or have more questions on how to finish this task off once you have the proper cable just comment back or click on my As Me link.
