Sorry if this is one of those super-ultra-extremely noob questions.
I connect to the internet using primarily a wireless adapter, accessing a router connected to a Cable modem. I recently bought a new Router, and have the old one lying around. I have two laptop computers, (one is a PC and the other is an old iBook from 2001) which I sometimes connect together through the old router, (using Ethernet cables) which is no longer connected to the internet in order to transfer files from one computer to the other quickly. The problem is that I find myself having to switch the wireless adapters on both machines completely OFF
in order to get them both to connect to each-other through the old router's Ethernet network.
My question is this: Is there a way (for the PC at least) to detect network places (as in other computers on a network) only
through the wired network? So far it can't differentiate between the router for internet access, and the router I need for networking.
