So i have a Vista desktop wirelessy connected to the router and a laptop running UNR 10.04. I used a Gigaware Cat5e crossover network cable to connect the desktop and laptop, and the lights light up orange so it's responsive i guess. I installed samba and can access my shared files on vista from my laptop but the transfer is 1mb/sec, i was hoping the crossover could help achieve something like 50mb/sec. Which is why i don't think i set it up right at all. How can I connect vista to ubuntu via crossover cables to transfer files?

i would just invest in a cheap switch at your local computer store to avoid using x-over cables.

You should be getting a bit better speed than 1MB/s while transferring using x-over, anywho ... just pick up a small 4 port switch and that should cure all your transfer problems.
