I have a number of computers at home connected through a WLAN but 2 of them are also connected between them with a crossover RJ45 cable (WinXP and the other Win7). I have a ton of files I want to copy from the XP computer to the Win7 computer but I want to make sure I'm copying through the cable connection to copy the files and not the WLAN one. Apart from disabling the WLAN card, what options do I have?
I do not know about win7 but i have tried it with xp.
First set two local ip to both pc then set default gateway of one to another.
For example, PC1 192.168.1.1 and PC2 192.168.1.2
set default gateway of PC1 192.168.1.2 and PC2 192.168.1.1
Now share files and do the transfer.
