    I have recently had a Time Warner Roadrunner Cable Modem installed. I have 2 computers at home and would like to network them so both can use Roadrunner Cable. The computer where the cable is installed has Windows ME as the operating system. The other computer has Windows 98 as the operating system. Both computers have network cards. The cable modem is connected to the network card. I have Belkin RJ45 Male/Male Category 5e Snagless Patch Cable (A3L791-25-S) and a Netgear ethernet hub (model EN 104 TP). I don't understand how to proceed any further. Can anyone help? Do I have the correct equipment?

    Thanks for your assistance.

    hi mgentry, i'm in the same stage as you and waiting for the answer to network them too. since you have cable speed, you should get a router. that way, you can get both pcs to go online and you can have them networked too. W/ a hub you can only networked them. so, in the meantime you can go get a router.
