Dear Network,

The first thing you should do is to buy ethernet cables, I would recommend crossed-cable to connect your computer, I would also recommend that you buy a switch, for better installation After, you have installed the ethernet cable and or switch you are going to turn on your computer and all outer devices Than you are going to click start, control panel, network connections, and the wizard is going to help you installed the two networks, after you finsh with the wizard your network should be set-up As for using onlyl one mouse, keyboard, and monitor, you only need to turn on the other computer to access the resources of the client computer
