I hate internet connection sharing- each computer has access to the hub > modem; both computers cannot communicate with each other that is all I'm trying to accomplish here.

You can't just plug the modem and both PCs into the hub unless you have two IP addresses from your ISP, in which case, file sharing is most likely not going to work for you anyway. You pretty much have to use ICS, a third-party gateway/NAT routing program, or buy a cable/DSL router.

ok you must add an account on the other computer with each others info from thier machines. and you must logon to the client logon. workgroups must be same name. id must be unique.
