    You'd have to buy three, actually. I wouldn't be suprised if it had problems software-wise, too.

    Personally, I'd just get a cheap switch. It's $10-$15 U.S. for ones from some of the newer/less popular companies, and $20-$25 for ones from one of the brands known for good products (ie Netgear, D-Link, Linksys, Belkin). Cat 5 cables will be $5-$10 for the three of you.

    That said, the previously-mentioned options should work and are cheaper.

    Yes I would as well as I've come across too many onboard nic's lately that just don't like crossover patch cables being used.

    On some routers/hubs/switches the first port must be used with a crossover cable. Just thought I would point that out as some customers have been coming in asking why the router/hub/switch wont work on port 1.

    Seeing that you are using XP and to save me typing a lot of garble.

    On the one that is connected to the internet.
    Go to the control panel (in classic view) open network setup wizard.
    Select you want to share your internet connection.
    Then follow the wizard.

    On the other computer
    Go to the control panel (in classic view) open network setup wizard.
    Select no you do not want to share the internet.
    Select the second option then click next.

    Remember to keep the network name different but keep the workgroup name the same.

    Hope this helps
