If it were me, I'd get a SOHO router with 4 LAN ports. Considering the distance between, you may want to look at a wireless router.

The reason I recommend that is unless your ISP has provided you with two static IP's, a hub/switch by itself won't work as you will need something to perform NAT, which a SOHO router can do.

and you have the answer. Buy a linksys/dlink/netgear wireless router and either wire to go wireless between pcs.

Router manual has all the step by step procedures to setup.

i have purchased 8 port hub what about that?

If you still have the bill of sale, you should be able to return the unit. Exchange it for a SOHO router as I said above.

As wanderer said, once you have the router, read the install guide/manual and set it up and connect either via wired, or wireless.

The normal process is, you plug your internet into the "WAN" or "External" port on the SOHO router. Your clients then plug into the LAN ports (get a router with 4 LAN ports even if you decide to purchase a wireless router) or connect to the wireless network you setup.

I highly recommend you get a wireless router.
