    Are you using a standard cat5 cable instead of a crossover cable?

    The type of cable you're using won't affect that. Although, if you are connecting 2 computers together directly use a crossover. What do you mean by turn on? Are these nic's already installed and show under device manager? Are they just disabled and you're trying to enable them?

    no everything is enable working and the connections are present but when I try to turn on those two features in the network cards properties they give that error message saying that the choices I have made will disable them. So the system is saying if I turn them on they disable themselves, the feautures not the cards.

    I wasn't suggesting that you need a cat5 rated cable. That is just the one most commonly available to consumers. But regardless, you do have the right cable, so that is not the issue. Have you already set up any other part of the network i.e. workgroup name, computer names, etc.? I'm posting a pic that shows my network properties. Are the boxes not checked on yours for the first 2 items?

    That document you posted doesn't seem to be valid. It appears to be a text file that contains no information, not a picture. Maybe try again?
