All I want to do is connect the laptop to the pc and share files
If you want I will make up one for you - how long do you want it? I live in Plumstead. Say R 50,00
USB dongle? Like a cell c dongle thingy?
Go to any local small PC store and they'll be able to sell you a cable for < R50. It shouldn't be a problem whether it's cross-over or not unless you have an oldish PC. If you're unsure you can check the wire colours on the two plugs. They should have a slightly different order on each end.
You should also be able to get from your big PC shops, PC Mania, Incredible Connection etc, but they'll most likely charge more than R50. It's a high-markup product. Material wise a 3m cable costs me R10. Heck even a Telkom Direct store could probably sell you a cable.
got mine a few weeks ago from Game(Golden Acre) for R50 for 10m
A cable is easier. I can make one up in 10 mins
Hey guys, I'm still searching for one. If you have any please let me know. Thanks
