Networking like getting an internet connection to work between the PC's? Since you are a guest you are likely to never reply to me, but you gotta provide more info on this.

Perhaps the best and simplest way is to get a wireless router and a few wireless cards for the computers. If you can't do that do the computers have an Ethernet connector?(just in case you don't know what it is it looks like a phone connector except a little larger) And what do you mean by nergear wireless hub? Is it a wireless router? Does it have an antenna or two popping out at the ends?
