Oh, I just noticed this in James's reply.
I concur with your guess - I think my 7' crossover cable was about $5 at
I haven't yet used 'fancier' stuff like hubs, switches, routers.
I got the two NICs and the cable, a year or two ago, to connect my older
computer with this one. The idea was backup, via Windows network facility .
Was pleased last fall after discovering BL2.1 to see eventually that, with
help mostly from Steven, that the same hardware works in Linux.
Am also pleased to see that people in this discussion group are so helpful
