I just had my entire night wasted, courtesy of Microsoft. All I want to do is set up a fracking LAN between my bootcamp MBP and a Dell XPS400 to play some co op Splinter Cell!!!!!! Apparently, you need a college degree to do the same thing in windows that, in OSX, involves plugging in a blue ethernet cable. I have tried every network connection possible, and it still gives an error that there is "little or no connection" I think that the computers are both assigning themselves a 0.0.0.0 IP, causing a problem. I entered a random manual IP, 172.16.1.36 and 172.16.1.37 with a subnet mask of 184.108.40.206 (I think, don't have it in front of me now... whatever the auto was) Help?
