    This should work for Win7 and Win8. At least it will provide you some needed information.

    You are welcome. I have never actually networked this way. So, I am not sure, but presumably so. Be sure and read the link I gave carefully. The way I presented it to you originally it implies that the crossover procedure will work for you. But, maybe not. Also, note the part that implies that a standard Ethernet cable may be all you may need. I apologize for being a bit careless when I posted the link originally.

    thanks my firend.how can i find that do i have network adapter?and how can i know that does it automatically "cross over" when they detect that they are connected directly to another network adapter using a regular Ethernet cable?

    It won't hurt to try both kinds of cables to see if one works. Here are some links about gaming with a crossover cable.

    Can I play network games with a crossover cable?

    I hope you get it working.
