Things you will need.

  • 1. At least two computers
  • 2. Network adapters for each computer. The cost should be approximately $20-50 3. If you have a 10Base-T adapters, and only two computers, you can directly connect one computer to the other. You will need to modify the cable by connecting connect pins: 1--3, 2--6, 3--1, 6--2, pins 4,5,7 and 8 are unused, but are normally connected straight through. A good site with several diagrams of crossover cable can be found at

4. If you have a 10Base-T adapters, and more than two computers, you will need a 10Base-T hub to connect them. The cost will be approximately $50.

5. If you have a Thin Ethernet adapters, you will need terminating resistors for each of the last two computers in the string.

6. Appropriate cables depending on the type of adapters you have
