Hey, im looking to network 2 computers in my house, would i have to buy a router for this, or could i just use a hub or switch?. I have already asked at several pc shops, and they all gave me diffewrent answers.
You should be able to do this easily, if both of your PC's have a network card. Simply connect the 2 PC's with a piece of CAT5 network crossover cable and then setup the network connection using the network connection wizard.
Once you have done that go into the properties of your net connection and enable sharing for that connection.
