Yes, you will need a crossover cable to do it. Just plug it in. If you are thinking of buying a second hub, a switch would be better (http://duxcw.com/faq/network/hubsw.htm). If you decide to get a switch and you may get broadband Internet access, than a combination router/switch would be the thing to buy. Larry
