2 options

1) Get what is called a crossover cable. This is a special ethernet cable that connects 2 computers directly. It looks like a standard ethernet cable but the wires inside are arranged differently. Make sure it says crossover. Then set the network address of both computers to have similar addresses. i.e. and and have the same workgroup name.

2) You can also go buy a special USB cable that can accomplish the same task. No network setting needed. Go look in your local computer store and you should be able to find it.

You can buy brand name (like D-Link) switches and hubs for like $10-$20. Then you can connect more than 2.
