I used it before I got a hub.
My friend has a computer upstairs with a cable connection.
I ran a cable downstairs to my first computer and installed
another network card in it.
I coudn't get a proper connection to the computer upstairs from the second computer,
so I bridged the connectios and it worked fine.
If you have more than 1 network card in your computer,all you
have to do is select the cards you want to bridge,right click on them
and click on bridge connections.

It does work like a basic hub.

You can also bridge seperate networks together.

It is located under network connections in the control panel.

Right,
You need at least 2 network cards in the computer and
2 crossover cables going to the other computers.

Then go to control panel,network connections.
Left click and hold on a spot away from the network connections,
Then drag the mouse accross the connections till they
are highlighted and release.
Then right click the connections and click bridge connections.

if you don't have a router anywhere on that lan you built, you won't get net on the briged connection.

that would be Internet Connection Sharing you want to do, and it's another procedure altogether.
