Networking Problems

Hi, just wondering if any of you could help... I have two PC's boths hooked up together via an Twisted pair cable (Or at least I think that's what it is, it's a yellow cable connected between both of the computers) but I've had a few problems, I click on Set up a Network in the My Networking Places Folder, I do everything on each of the PC's but it doesn't seem to work, it either : Doesn't find anything, Stalls for a while (when going in to the Entire network folder) and then doesn't find anything or finds something but then looses it! I've tried almost everything, replacing the cards on each PC, checking the cable, changing it, adding and removing the hardware, everything! I was wondering if you guys could help?
