My setup at home goes like this: Code: INTERNET | ROUTER ____ PC1 | | SWITCH-------|--- PC2 |___WIRELESS ROUTER ___|___ | | PC3 LAPTOP (excuse my terrible ASCII skills..) This all works just swell. Both the ROUTER and the WIRELESS ROUTER have DHCP, the ROUTER giving out 10.1.1.* addresses, and the WIRELESS ROUTER giving out 192.168.0.* addresses. Not too complicated a setup. Occasionally I have the need to transfer files or communicate directly between PC3 and LAPTOP, which both connect to the network through wireless. I can't imagine why exactly, but this is dog slow. To transfer a 700MB movie, it takes about 20-30 minutes. So what I can do, is run a CAT6 cable directly between LAPTOP and PC3. My question now, is how do I instruct each machine to connect to the other through the cable, rather than over the wireless connection. I tried setting up a simple VNC between the 2, simply so I could use my laptop from my desk with keyboard mouse and larger monitor, and it was bearable, but I know the performance should be capable of being much much better.
