Depends on yuor definition of a network.

If Network = computers can talk to each other. the a crossover cable directly between the two computer network cards will work.

If you want the computer to share an Internet connection or a connection to another network, then you need a router.

A basic SOHO/Home router usually has 4 wired ports (the switch part), a WAN/Internet port and optionally wireless capability

Why do you want to network the computer? THe purpose of the network defines the design of the network.
