[all variants] Two computers, one cable, network newbie

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – So I got two computers, one with Ubuntu other with freeBSD, and I'd like to connect them both to the internet. All I have is one Ethernet cable that I used to plug into the computer. How would I do it? Do I have to get a hub, or can I simply use some kind of cable splitter? (HowTos)
