I built a new computer recently and I've tried to connect them with an Ethernet cable, but when I turn on computer discovery, I cannot find either computer. However, when I looked at the networks with my laptop I saw both computers. I was also able to transfer files using my laptop but the transfer speed was so low, I was unable to move anything over 1GB. Is there a simple guide to connecting two computers using an Ethernet? Also, what are the inherent risks with turning on file discovery and file sharing on a private network? I just need to move my music and some documents over to my new computer, but the total file size exceeds 30GB.
