BNC Connectors


I have 2 computers each with BNC cards, 2 BNC cables, 1 terminator and 3 T pieces. Is it possible for me to connect the 2 computers with this hardware?

Thank You.

Please provide more details about your system and hardware... this is far, far too vague.

BNC is a type of network connector also.
I realised that actually, I could connect the cables as if there were 3 computers though only 2 computers were actually connected. With the terminator at one end and the third T piece at the other!

This is what it looks like:
Terminator, BNC Card, T-Piece, Cable, T-Piece, BNC Card, Cable, T-Piece

i've already said, what things look like is really of little use... you cuold have a prehistoric ethernet setup, you might have token ring hardware, you might even have one of each.. we have no idea.... provide model numbers and chipsets.
