Connection two laptops


Recommended Posts

Anyone know where to start with connecting to laptops up and sharing the DVD drive?

 

Brother has got one of those netbooks with XP on it but it does not have a CD/DVD Drive. So he needs to connect to another one to use the drive to install some software.

using the router to create a LAN connection between the two is the best bet and then simply share the DVD drive from one to the other.

 

If you share the drive as "D$" then to connect to it from the other machine, you simply need to open a command prompt and type:

 

\\computername\d$

 

and hit OK.

 

(where computername is the name of the machine with the DVD installed.)
