 Connecting two computers
Hi...I am not very good at computer applications, so nth goes easy with me. I am trying to connect two computers in my office. I have a router. Could you please let me know the procedure of connecting these two computers. Any setting is required in both computers.

Dear Abbasi,
If you are asking how to share an Internet connection using a router, first the router must include a hub section (multiple ports). It is then a matter of running a cable (typically category 5) to a port from each PC and enabling a network connection on the PC. If you are looking to share files or peripheral then you must implement a "share" function on the PC that has the device or files.
