    Right click Local area connection and select properties.
    NOTE: Local area connection icon appears only if your LAN card driver is installed
    In General tab select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click Properties
    Select Use the following IP address



    Give the IP address and Subnet mask.
    Click ok
    In the local area connection properties Tick the “show icon in notification area when connected”
    Click Close
    Start – control panel- system
    Select computer name tab click Change button
    Give a suitable name in Computer name box

    It is very easy to connect on Windows you do not need to manually create a LAN connection,
    because Windows automatically creates and configures the connection when you start your
    computer.

    1. First start your computer after connecting it with your modem
    2. After Windows detects your network adapter, Windows creates
    and starts a network connection that is configured by default with
    Transmission Control Protocol (TCP/IP) versions 4 and 6 enabled.
    2. In addition, Windows configures the LAN connection as a Dynamic Host
    Configuration Protocol (DHCP) client that obtains network parameters,
    3. such as an Internet Protocol (IP) address and default gateway IP address,
    from a DHCP server.
    4. You can also locate local subnet or on another subnet with all intermediary
    network hardware
    So go and enjoy your LAN connection
    All the best

    if you want to connect both your laptops with each other through LAN than you must insure that LAN card is installed and working properly or not.after this you must plug the LAN ports to both laptops in order to connect them . after this on any system go to START menu-CONTROL panel-network connections than select properties after right clicking on LAN connection (local area connection). then in general select the (TCP/IP) i.e; internet protocol and than select properties and provide the IP address after selecting the use the following IP address than ok. than again go to control panel-system and select the the computer name ,you can also change the computer name than click on apply and restart ypour laptop.

    If you want to create a LAN network with the two systems having windows 7 OS then you should get a box of LAN cable connector so that you can connect different LAN cables to it and also in the first system you should give the user name and password of the LAN network and share it with the second system then you can connect both systems with a LAN network.

    Hello,
    Connecting many computers to the network can be done in the following ways:


    Method 1
    1.You can use a CAT 5 cable which is parallel(crossover) and connect it directly to the ethernet ports available on the computers.
    (Note:This is only possible in case of 2 computers )
    2.You need to set your computers i/p address .
    3.You can do this by opening network from the small right corner of your desktop
    4.Then click on adapter settings.
    5.Select properties and then select IP v4 from the various options which comes.


    3.Double click on IP v 4 then you will get a screen like this one


    4.And then set the IP address of your computer.
    5.Do the same for the other computer.
    6.Now to copy and share you can use softwares line LAN viewer.
    7.Download from here http://lan-viewer.en.softonic.com/


    8.You can scan the other computers by using this software and even copy the shared data.


    Method 2
    1.In this method you can use normal LAN wire
    2.This method is basically to connect many computers to each other in a network
    3.This can be done by use a LAN port.


    4.The IP settings will be the same which we discussed earlier.
    5.And you can use the same software to scan and copy data from other computers in the network


    Regards
    -Abhishek

    Hello,

    1. Goto Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center.

    2. Under the section ‘Sharing and Discovery , enable the option Network discovery, File Sharing, Public folder sharing and others if needed.

    II. Name Computer & create Work group
    3. Goto Start and right click on “Computer”. Click Properties .

    4.. In the System properties window click ”Change settings“ link at middle right.

    5.. At “Computer description” Give each computer a description.

    6.. Click on “change” to change name of the computer and create a work group.

    7. In the name option give it the same name you gave it for its description and in the workgroup section type in “New network”.

    8. Once you change these, you will be asked to restart the computer, so simply click OK at the prompt to restart.

    9.Scroll down to “Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)”, click it and click properties button. Then click on “Use the following IP address” and at “IP Address” type in an IP address

    dear friend,
    You can always create a wireless LAN. Of course, it depends on which operating system you have, but Windows 7 supports this. What you do is make your own computer into a wireless access point to which other computers can connect. The two big advantages of this is that you don’t need a cable and it allows for multiple computers to be connected.
    However, the speed will be slow, since it’s wireless and especially when your computer is not the asker/receiver of files, because as the access point, all traffic flows through your computer.
    This type of network is called an “ad-hoc network” and this can be easily done through your network center. In Windows 7, it goes like this:

    1. Open network center
    2. Manage wireless networks
    3. Add
    4. Configure an ad-hoc network

    If you’re looking to transfer big files, stick to USB or external hard drives, which will be much faster. Even LAN cables will only give you a percentage of the speed you can have with external storage devices.
