Setup PnP Realtek PCI cards connected with RJ45 no hub. Network setup for client for MS Networks. Property -logon & restore network. Adapter - set at 32 bindings for IPX & TCP. IPX set at NetBios over IPX. TCP setup for internet connection for ISP via modem. All resources are enabled for sharing on both computers. Both computer networks are setup the same. Still unable to see or mapdrive to either computer. Thanking you in advance for your time.

If you drives are shared as c$ you will have to map them that way. ie net use *\\computer1\c$. Any reason for using ipx protocol? tcp/ip is much cleaner.Make sure both machines are on same subnet with subnet mask 255.255.255.0 Good luck

One major question are you using a crossover RJ45 cable, or just a standard RJ45? If your answer is standard, then here is the problem. NIC cards use pins 1 & 2 for data send and 3 & 6 for data receive. If you are not using a hub then one computer is trying to send data to the send pins of the other computer, This does not work. 2 solutions. One get a hub, or two make your own cable (I have found trying to buy one of these cables hard to do.) To make your own you must have a crimping tool, for a reliable one, you can get a hub cheaper. If you still want to make one, wire one end of the cable 1 wire to each pin, then on the other end take the wire from pin one and move it to pin 3, 2 to 6, and vice versa. If you want the certified wiring diagram e-mail me and I will send it to you.

If you connect your two PC's directly to each other with simple RJ45 cable, then it's very normal that it's not working.
Use a crossed-cable.
