You should have:
one cable from a network adapter in the ICS host to the cable MODEM.
One cable from a second network adapter in the ICS host to the hub.
One cable from the ICS client to the hub.
I count 5, not 3 cables in your post and I am confused. A cable unplugged means exactly that. It is unplugged or it is not working (at one of both ends)/not wired correctly. Larry

correct me if i am wrong. BUT TO have a lan at home with 2 pc is this what you need:
a nic card on each pc
a hub
Rj45 CABLES

HAVE A CABLE RUNNING FROM EACH PC TO THE HUB
AND WIN2K ON EACH MACHINE,WHAT WOULD CAUSE A MESSAGE SUCH AS "LOCAL AREA CONNECTION NETWORK
CABLE UNPLUGGED" - COULD II BE THE NIC CARDS ARE
DAMAGED, CABLES DAMAGED OR HUB DAMAGED?
HELP

Yes. It usually means that Windows NT is talking to the network adapter and the adapter is reporting that it is not connected to a network. The adapter cannot verify that a link exists to an Ethernet receiver and transmitter at the other end of the cable. It is usually caused by a cable that is not plugged-in or does not work. If you have good cables and turn-off the hub the error message will occur. What do the LEDs on the network adapters and hub tell you? Are the cables properly wired straight-thru per http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/cable/cable1.htm. Larry
