a router or a switch will do, switch is cheaper, albeit the router is only a small bit more and give you more options ,like wireless access, in case your computer(s) happen to have a wireless card installed. hardware firewall for internal privacy and facilitates networking. you have a choice of basic cabling (cat 5 ethernet cable), and or wireless access as far as what you need for physical/logical connection.
have fun

A router and one ethernet cable (Cat5) for each computer. Or a wireless NIC per computer.


Really not that expensive to go wireless. BTW I don't like or recommend USB unless there is no other option.
