Specs: Windows XP
I want to connect 3 pc's but not sure how to achieve this and in the easiest way, my skill level is to say the least moderate.

I have 3 seperate PC's and no option of connecting them to the internet, but i would like the pc's to be able to see each other.
any help on achieving this would be welcome

Each computer needs to have a Network Interface (NIC for short). You would need a switch (8 port switch would do nicely) and network cables (one each).

You connect each cable to a computer and a port on the switch. Then you configure TCP/IP settings on each PC to allow them to communicate.


PC 1
IP =
Subnet Mask =

PC 2
IP =
SM =

PC 3
IP =
SM =

Then once theyr'e communicating ensure all three have the exact same workgroup name.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
