You need to make Cross-Over data cable you can do with your self its very easy or other wise you can purchase from a near by computer store

this how you can make it.

just arrange the colors exactly as shown in the image.

Step 2 :

plugin the cable in each each computer's Ethernet card.

now You also need to provide static IP addresses in both Computers.

To do this , right click on My network places and select properties.

Then right click in Network Connections on your network connection and select properties again. In the general tab, middle of the window highlight Internet Connections TCP/IP and press the properties button below it.

In the window that appears, select "use the following IP address" and enter in PC # 1, 192.168.1.2 for the IP address, 255.255.255.0 for subnet mask, 192.168.1.2 for default gateway; no need to address the DNS. Save and close out of this.

For PC # 2 go to the same place and enter in PC # 2, 192.168.1.3 for IP address, 255.255.255.0 for subnet mask, 192.168.1.2 for default gateway. Note that the only difference between PC 1 and PC 2 is the IP address and the subnet mask and default gateway is the same.

Make sure you are in the same work group. Right click on My Computer, select properties and the System Properties window appears. Select computer name tab and follow the info there to set the work group name. Both should be in same work group.

Now the two should be connected. You need to network share folders to see the folders in the other pc. This is done by opening Windows Explorer (right click on start and select explorer), then right click on folder you want shared, then follow the sharing prompts.
