either get a router or a crossover cable, crossover if its only two computers, it will make your life much easier.

Ok, I would say "Get a switch. No hub, hubs suck." I just had a problem like that, but i had all the proper equiptment. Turned out I was stupid and didn't assign IP addresses to each computer. DURRR!!! Stupid me.

if its just two computer you want to connect together use a crossover cable....If you plan to build up a network of more than two computers. Go get a router.

also you might want to double check to make sure the windows default firewall is DISABLED.
