    Hi All
    i just bought a Lan Cable to make a network between my desktop and laptop
    so i can make a file transfer between them, and play games over lan

    My Desktop has Windows 7 32x-Bit
    My Laptop has Windows 7 64x-Bit

    i plug it in both of them
    and i putted these IPs:
    via TCP/Ip v4

    sounds like you need a cross-over wire rather than regular wire, unless you have a switch-hub between them. In addition to this from the IP range you specified you are trying to create a internet share, you would need the another network device thats connected to desktop for the internet as well and check the IP range isnt already used.
