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.
