Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.
The best and fast way is with a USB flash drive.
With LAN, you need a switch, and share the file that you want transer. Also exist another form to access the files without share it, but the most usually is sharing the files.
Or, with a crossover cable, and set the IP address manually.

The easiest, cheapest way is to just buy you a hub, and two Ethernet cables. You need no internet connection at all.
