Any network problems please speak to David (<grin>).Well, I was serious in suggesting a small write-up Douglas.
My experience here started with a thin-wire Ethernet system where
three PCs were strung together using 50-ohm cable, T-pieces and
terminators. It ran at all of 10Mb/s! Immediately more complex
than 2 PCs and a cross-over cable. Now I have 4 PCs and 4-port
router connected to the broadband, using 100Mb/s UTP cabling,
meaning I need to understand things like DHCP, multiple HOSTS files,
I've never actually done a 2-PC with cross-over network, so your
much more recent experience may be a good guide to others.....
