Apologies if this is in the wrong category.
I have a MacBook running Leopard and another laptop running Windows XP. I have them working both and finding eachother using the wiresless router we have.
Now I have Age of Empires 3 and want to have a network game between the two. I want to play over the LAN because I feel it would be more reliable. I have just been and got myself a crossover cable. This is easier because I do not want a wire running to and from the router.
I just wanted to know how do set them up. Will it be a case of just plugging them in? I have done a bit of quick research and people have been saying that IP address, subnet thingamajigs need changed and all sorts! I am home form work in an hour so just hoping to get a feel of it before I get playing :D
