I have 2 Windows 10 PCs connected to the same Wi-Fi network in the same room. I regularly need to access file shares on PC1 from PC2 and vice versa, being on Wi-Fi this is very slow.
I'd like to create a direct ethernet connection between the two (in order to speed up file sharing) whilst maintaining the Wi-Fi connection for internet connectivity.
I've tried various configurations in
Network Connections with the bridge adapter to no avail. Results end up breaking internet connectivity for one or both of the machines, or breaking the direct connection between the two.
Is there a way to do this without buying a router to create a second network between to two computers? Unfortunately these PCs are too far away from any network ports to the current router.
