I have 7 computers at home and wish to connect them all to the Internet using ICS. What I have so far is a Hub from my cable modem which has three machines on it as well as one cable going to another hub in another room which has 4 machines off of it. I also have three @home accounts. On the first hub there are two account machines running and on the second hub there is one account machine.What i want to do is to have the first hub feed the second hub directly instead of the second hub running off an ICS setup from one machine. What kind of cable do I use to connect 2 hubs together so that the essentialy become one hub. which all the machines could connect to directly. In other words I want to illiminate the ICS macine that is between the two hubs. The following link goes to s diagram of what I want to achieve
