ok, lets start from the top, make sure that there is a green light on both nics( this could indicate a duplex mismatch). Now set diffrent Ip's on each interface, set one to 192.168.1.1 netmask of 255.255.255.252, the second should get an ip of 192.168.1.2 255.255.255.252 now go to a command prompt on each machine and type ping 127.0.0.1. If this works then type the opposing machines ip address when doing a ping.

please give all outputs and error messages, this could be useful in diagnosing and other problems that maybe accuring.
