I would like to have 2 connections on 2 computers, where 1 connection will be used for internet and the other will be used to transfer files from a Windows 7 Ultimate computer to a Windows XP computer.
The connection for the internet goes to a router, the other connection is a twisted pair cat5 ethernet cable straight from the windows xp computer to the windows 7 pc.
I would like this setup to eliminate the router in between when transferring files from one computer to another as it will be faster.
I obviously have 2 network cards on the windows 7 computer as well as on the windows xp computer.
My question is, how do I specify which connection to use for internet and which connection to use for sharing as the router is by default creating a lan between the 2 computers as they are connected to the same router.
I tried setting a static IP without a gateway but didnt work.
Couldnt find anything on google, actually im tired of researching something which I do not know how to explain in a few words, I had to give an example.
