    How to make a LAN using 2 pc's and a router

    Lame question, I know, but would I achieve this using 2 systems and patch cables. Both have ethernet.

    should do you.

    short answer: plug both comps into router, give them the same workgroup, share the files and printers you want. job done. windows XP (which i presume you use? possibly?) is stupidly easy to use when setting up a network.

    Agrees with ^^

    Providing they both lease an IP and in same workgroup filesharing should work!

    What you planning on using LAN for?
