I have 2 computers and a TiVO I want to network together.

Computer1: (Main Computer)WinXP Pro. 2 Nic cards. 1 For internet. 1 For Network.
Computer2: WinXP Pro. 1 Nic for Network
TiVO: USB>NIC adapter enabled

I have an old 10 base, 8 port hub I want to use. On the back I have:From left to right) A toggle switch labeled ::To Hub< - >To PC:: Than there are 8 ports.

Code:
::To Hub< - >To PC:: 8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1
Neither Computer2 or the TiVO need to have access to the internet. Therefore am I correct in saying that all I need to do is hook each computer & TiVO into its own port on the hub????

Hope all this makes sense?

Thanks

-Jay

Buy a router, it'll make this job MUCH easier. FWIW, giving your TiVo access to the Internet eliminates the need for a phone line and daily call, that's how I have mine connected.
