I received quite a few other responses over the weekend, and I wanted to
be able to include a few more of the best. I also wrote a function to
find user names, hence I've included the list of people that helped me
out. Hope I didn't forget anyone..

1. From Jens Fischer <>

A good starting point for Ethernet questions is the following web page:

Details on crossover wiring can be found at:

2) From David Sinn <>

Look to see if one of the hubs has a switch that says either
uplink/downlink or MDI-X/MDI. If it has either (normally is it the first
or last port of the hub), then just plug a cable from the first hub into
the port in question on the second. If you don't get a link light on
each, change the position of the switch. If you do get a link lite, you
are all set.
