Hi...I am a long time computer user but relatively new to the MacOS and pretty much a beginner when it comes to networking. I just installed a wireless router for my Mac and PC which is running fine (USB LAN stick for the PC). I have been trying to network the Mac and PC and I have gotten so far as to being able to see my shared PC folders with the Mac no problem. However, the network seems to be using the wireless link where as I want to do this with the ethernet cable I installed between the Mac and the PC for reasons of speed. For the life of me, I can't figure out how to make a network connection with the eternet cable and for the network to use this link for filesharing. Is this possible and how do I do it? I suspect that the problem might be that I don't understand how to assign an IP address for the built-in Ethernet card which normally comes from the Router or from PPPoE in the case of an internet connection.
