  1. Are you going to also be connecting to the Internet, with DSL or Cable modem?

    Anyway, if you aren't connecting to the Internet just hook up all your PC's into the hub (with the cables) and setup TCP/IP (in the Network icon in the control panel) and give each machine it's own IP address. Start with 192.168.1.100 and go up to 192.168.1.107 Now you should be able to all that you want.

  3. Are you going to also be connecting to the Internet, with DSL or Cable modem?...
    What is necessary for that please? (say ADSL, for the same configuration, to allow several people to share unique web connection).

  4. You need a Cable/DSL router. check egghead.com or many other online vendors.
