I was interested in connecting my laptop to my desktop through a crossover cable. My desktop currently has 2 nic cards installed. The motherboard integraded one, and the us-robotics one I installed myself. I currently have the integrated card disabled in my bios. My question is.. can i connect my laptop to one nic card in my desktop with the crossover cable and connect the second nic card to my internet connection? I dont expect the internet connection to be shared between the laptop and desktop. I just want to be able to share files between my laptop and desktop, and get on the internet with my desktop.
