How to connect two computers to a local network

The first computer is connected to the network via a cable, can a second computer be connected to it in order to simply exchange files, for example, by connecting the USB inputs?


Expert answer:

Hello yury! Of course, nothing will work with a usb cable, you better don't even try. In order to banally connect two computers in a local network, you need a network cable, which can be bought at any computer store for a penny. You have two options:

  1. If the first computer is connected directly to the provider's network, then you will need to buy another network card and connect the second PC to it.
  2. If you have a router, just buy a cable and connect it to the LAN port on the router and to the network port on the second computer.
