    Well I have a laptop and my desktop computer ok now I got a lot of important files on my laptop that I need to get onto my other computer. But how exactly am I going to do this I can't send it through the net and the laptop hasn't got a burner. So is their a way I can setup a LAN or even just buy a cord so I can send files between the computers? Both are running Windows XP and I repeat I can't send them through ftp, msn , p2p etc . .anything involving the internet.

    buy a crossover network cable, and you can plug it into both any they will be networked and you can transfer files.

    or if u want you could invest in a router, then both machines could acces the internet at the same time, or even up to 4 machines or more. and u could transfer over the network in the same way.

    Yeah, there is software for doing this.

    No, it doesn't matter if it's 2 laptops or 1 of each. As long as you have the necessary ports.

    I thought WinXP had a file transfer wizard for doing this.

    A Google search should help you plenty..

    Good luck.
