Advice 1: How to create a local network between computer and laptop

To create a local network between computer and laptop is possible in two ways: to use cable connection or wireless Wi-Fi network. Both of these methods have their pros and cons.
How to create a local network between computer and laptop
You will need
  • network cable, Wi-Fi adapter.
Instruction
1
Consider the example of a wired connection of the laptop computer. Purchase a network cable of the desired length. Connect with it, the network card of computer and laptop.
2
Turn on both devices and wait for the definition of new local network. Open the settings of this network connection on the computer. Find "Internet Protocol TCP/IP" and open its properties. Enter any IP address in the corresponding field. The only rule – the numeric value of all the segments must not exceed 255.
3
Do the same thing in the LAN settings of the laptop. When entering the IP address, replace the fourth paragraph.
4
In order to go to the computer files, working with laptop, simultaneously press the Win button (start) and R and type in the box \\50.50.50.1, where the numbers represent the IP address of the computer.
5
If the cable connection does not suit you, then buy a wifi adapter. These devices connect to the USB ports and PCI. The latter is located on the motherboard inside the system unit.
6
Connect the adapter to the computer and install the drivers for it. Open the control center network and sharing. Go to "Manage wireless networks". Click "Add". Click on "Create a network the computer-computer". Click "Next".
7
Specify the name of the future network, select security type, enter the password and check the box next to "Save settings for this network". Click "Next".
8
Now open the list of available wireless networks on laptop. Connect to the network you just created. Please configure both devices as described in the second and third steps. To get access to the files of the neighboring device, use the algorithm described in the fourth step.

Advice 2 : How to configure the network through the switch

When you build your own local network it is necessary to consider some nuances. Of course, if you want to connect network computers to the Internet, additional equipment is necessary.
How to configure the network through the switch
You will need
  • switch;
  • - network cables.
Instruction
1
Purchase a network hub (switch). This equipment will need to combine all computers into a single network. Remember that you can connect and laptops. Now select a sufficiently powerful computer that will be connected to the Internet. Purchase a network card and install it on your chosen PC.
2
Install the drivers for this network card. Now, connect all computers and other devices with network hub. Connect this equipment to the mains. With the PC you have chosen to carry out the functions of the router, go to the Internet.
3
Configure the connection to the Internet, creating a new connection and entering the desired data. Be sure to check that it is working. Now open the menu containing the list of active networks on this computer. Go to properties of the network adapter that is connected to the switch. Open the settings of the Internet Protocol TCP/IP.
4
Activate the option "Use the following IP address". Set the value of a static (permanent) IP address equal to 101.124.124.1. Save settings this menu. Open the properties of your Internet connection and go to the tab "Access". Find and activate the function that allows other network users to use this Internet connection.
5
At this stage you have finished configuring the first PC. Now open the properties of the network adapters of other computers. In this case we are talking about network cards connected with a hub. Run the following configure TCP/IP:
- 101.124.124.X – IP-address
- 255.0.0.0 – subnet Mask
- 101.124.124.1 – default gateway
- 101.124.124.1 – DNS servers.
Note that the parameter X must be greater than one, but less than 250. Save the settings and reboot all computers. Constantly make sure that the Internet access of the first PC was active.
