I had worked in a h/w firm in kerala. so i know h/w with windows os. now i am in mumbai.  i want 2 know about networking in offices.   LAN system uses in my office. also sify broadband is the internet connection. i want to know how we make LAN connection. I have only knowledge about peer to peer connection. And also i want to study in networking. So if  u can help me do it by giving notes, instructions, any ebooks that available.

    so u have prior knowledge with peer to peer environment ..
    so i am not moving in to cabling details..if u need it use the search option in this website and enter the word structured cabling…our active user fazilmedia have given a lot of details.

    i hope u dnt have any routers in your network..so connect the sify broadband ( i have not used their ) to the lan card of any of ur xp machine. i dont know whether they support dhcp of u have to give static ip .ask some one from sify.
    then install a second lan card to the same machine…
    go to the property of first lan card and selct the tick mark on cnnection sharing….it will automatically reconfigure the ip address of ur second lan card to
    then connect the 2nd 3rd and 4 th xp machines to the network..leave the ip configuration in automatic mode…these machines will collect ip address from ur first machine .they will also collect gateway and dns info from first machine so u can use internet as well as lan funtions..

    try it
