I am having a problem connecting using computer-to-computer networks. I have tried everything posted on this forum but the error messages still comes out. My sister has installed Snow Leopard from the same CD on a newer MacBook than mine and she had no problems connecting. Is this due to my older MacBook Pro? I would thankful for some assistance on this problem.
Computer- to-computer networking connection problems
There a lot of ways to network a MacBook to another Mac, first is through Wireless connection, second is through Wired using an Ethernet cable and third is through FireWire. When connecting on wireless turn on your Mac Airport MacBook models are equipped with Airport/Airport Extreme namely 802.11g or 802.11g/n. Two MacBook models or one MacBook and another Airport, can be networked together without the Airport hardware access point by using direct computer to computer communication within a range of about 50 meters. When connecting through an Ethernet cable use a crossover cable when connections of same devices happen like MacBook to MacBook or PC to PC and be sure that they are of the same domain and network. When using a MacBook and network it to a PC use a straight cable. When connecting through FireWire use FireWire Target Disk Mode. In this mode the computer will appear as a second hard drive on the desktop of the MacBook. To use Target Disk Mode simply connect the computers using a FireWire cable then start the second computer while holding down the T key on its keyboard.
