Networking - Help!
Hello Im new here so dont flame me abt searching or if this is in the wrong area or anything.

I have a powermac G5 Dual 1.8

I also have a HP windows laptop.

The HP laptop is connected by wireless lan to a router which is connected to my DSL modem.

I have connected my Mac To my laptop by an ethernet cable and entered my IP router DNS and allt hat info.

The internet wont work.

Do I need to have a crossover or will the ethernet cable work.

I think you need a network swich.

So you're trying to use your Laptop as your G5's connection to your LAN? (Because you don't want to plug the G5 directly into the router?)

Window/MAc same ISP
I have been using both a PowerMac G4 dual and a Window machine just using a SMC 10/100 6406tx switch and it works just great. I am even using sharing option for my printer to work on both machine.
