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.

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?)

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.
