    there's an 8 port workgroup switch box that you can buy.

    here's a picture


    it's actually quite easy to use.

    1. hook your internet connection into the uplink
    2. connect your computers to slots 1 and 2

    both of your computers will have internet and they will be connected to each other. But of course you also have to know how to set up a network in windows.

    ...and that is as simple as changing the workgroup name on all of the computers to the same name.

    yeah I pretty much described it as the perfect way to do it, there is no easier way to do it.
