I have two PC's with Windows 7 that connect to internet via WiFi. But when i want to transfer large amount of data between them, i connect both with a network cable.
When i do this, Windows assigns a crazy IP to each, and i can reach PC1 by typing PC2's ip on explorer, for instance:
To find PC1's ip I open a
cmd and type
ipconfig /all, and locate the ip for the ethernet adapter. Then i have to mind this number and go to PC2 and type it.
This works very well but it's quite bothersome. I could assign a fixed ip to PC2, but then i would have to change this every time i have to connect it to a cabled network. I don't know if naming the computer would work, but i'm afraid the wireless connection would be used instead of the cabled.
So, is there an easier way of doing it?
