Hi All,
I would be grateful if you can tell me how to network computers without an outside link ie without internet connections. Normal setup would be ADSL Modem>Router>Hub>Computers. I would like to know how to network computers without ADSL Modem. What would the setup look like?

Thats pretty much it.  They'll even still work through the router and hub without the DSL connection, so if you dont really want to disturb your setup, you can just pull the broadband connection out.

I agree with Rid's response above. Using a hub would be the way to go. You don't need an internet connection to connect your computers.
