No you can't connect both machines to the router.

If you don't want to use hub or switch to connect both machines, here is how you can do it.

You still require NIC on both machines.

Connect your DSL router using USB on one machine.

Now, connect both machines by plugging Cross-Cable in the NIC on both side. Assign IP address on both side.
e.g 192.168.0.1/255.255.255.0 and 192.168.0.2/255.255.255.0
Don't assign default gateway on NIC, where you have connected DSL router.
On other machine default gateway would be the NIC IP address of machine with DSL router connected.

Now enable the Internet connection sharing on the Adapter which was created by the USB connector.

Disable firewall on both machines.

If you want to connect using hub/switch and more than one computer.

Then connect the staright CAT5 cable from DSL router to the HUB.

Then connect other machines on the same hub.

Then you need to configure your DSL router to  be a DHCP server, so that all machines on the LAN can get IP address and can access the internet.

Also, configure the PAT on your DSL router. By default it is configured, so just open the HTTP web console from any of the machines using the DSL routers LAN IP address and configure DHCP server options.

Have you connected both machines to the hub.

Try interchanging the Cables. It could be possible that cable might be faulty.
