I got this computer (pretty good) from my step dad's work, I installed XP on it and reinstalled the network adapter, which was a loopback adapter. My question is (And I'm almost sure you can) How do you connect to a lan on a loopback adapter?
If I go to network connections/properties/configure, The two options are "Medium" (which apparently is just how I'm connecting; ethernet, pl, etc.) and Network adress, which is just blank.
I understand that if I go to my ipconfig on this computer that I should be able to get a network adress/mask/myown ip, but when I do that on the computer with the loopback, it'll only show what I've put in manually. Are there any specifics I should be putting under IP on the loopback controls, anything under "network address" (I've tried submask/my own/routers), What should I do? A step by step lesson or tutorial would be nice :(
Edit: And before you ask, I've pinged 127.0.0.1, it works fine.
