Re: How to? Connect 2 PC's without router?
Just a thought that is a different approach to solving this problem. Have you thought of taking the old hard drive from the Gateway computer and setting the jumpers on the harddrive to make it a slave. Then install it in the new Dell computer as a second hardrive. This will give you all the data,licences, that are on the old harddrive and additional harddrive storage space. The process isn't all that difficult when it comes to moving the hardware from the old box to the new and it keeps your files in your hands instead of going away to somewhere else with the old computer.
