“Status: Limited or no connectivity.” Problem networking two computers

Problem networking two computers through a hub.
I’m trying to network two computers at home. One is a laptop with Windows XP Professional SP2, Norton Internet Security and Windows Fire Wall is turned off since I’m using Norton’s. The second is a Windows 2000 Server SP4, with Norton Internet Security installed. I’m using a netgear hub. I can’t get them to see each other. I keep getting this message on the bottom right corner on the network connections icon “Status: Limited or no connectivity.” Not sure how to get by this. There is no router in the mix and no internet connection when networked together. When not networked, the laptop is connected to cable high speed. I just switch the cable from the hub to the cable modem. Any suggestions?
