Hi,
I need help setting up a wired LAN for 2-4 comps. I plan on playing games with up to four comps on the same network but have no idea where to start. I want to do a plan party kinda thing because where i am there is no broadband internet :cry:  (except Sat but you cant play FPS on that) so im stuck with trying LAN.
Like I said all i have is dial-up here so i don't own a router or a switch or whatever is needed to accomplish a LAN setup. I can build a comp but i have Zero experience with networking so if someone could give me a step by step how-to like he was talking to a monkey(that speaks English) that would be immensely helpful. Thank you.

buy switch. connect all pcs to switch. set ip's for each comp as 192.168.1.x (x being any number between 1 and 254), subnet mask=255.255.255.0, no default gateway or dns info needed.
