    Hi,

    I recently got a Laptop (Vista) and I'm trying to share the internet between it and my PC (XP.) I have 3 ethernet cables and a hub and a Modem. Is there any way I can do it WITHOUT getting a router?

    Cheers.

    I plug my notebook right into the phone outlet, with a wire splitter and modem with DSL. There is no communication with other computers that way. The router is what communicates to other computers, it directs.... (I can move only as far as my cord will take me)
