I am running 2 computers.
Each have a WIFI connection to the router (other location in the house) which provides internet.
I would like now to directly connect those 2 computers via their Gigabit Ethernet card to provide fast file transfers between each computer because WIFI is too slow. The router is located too far to connect cables to also so I must use direct connection.
Computer 1 has Windows 2008 R2 (not running DNS server) Computer 2 is using OSx Mavericks
I have already successfully made direct connections where I have given below info to computer 1: IP: 192.168.2.1 / SUB: 255.255.255.0 and the rest I left empty, computer 2: IP: 192.168.2.2 / SUB: 255.255.255.0 and the rest I left empty.
But... this is the issue here... sometimes the internet stops working on either of them because for some reason a computer started thinking the internet should come from LAN and as such ignoring the WIFI internet connection.
I would like to know how I correctly should set up the computers LAN settings so I don't get interruptions on my WIFI internet.
