    Default Connect Win 8 to win XP

    Hi there,

    let's directly to the point. i ma trying to connect my windows 8 beta laptop to windows XP laptop. Through this, I maye can recieve internet on my XP. However I am not able to.

    I am using wireless internet on my Windows 8 laptop and it connects fine. I am using a crossover cable to connect to the XP..the XP recognizes it when its plugged in, however I get the "Limited or no connectivity".

    Then i do not know how to do with it, hope some experienced or professionals can help in this.

    thank you very much.

    do you have password protected sharing enabled or not?

    if it's disabled then the computer generally will not prompt you to enter a username and password. in that case you can map a network drive using alternate credentials (so long as the password isn't blank)
