There are primarily two different types of computers; Desktop computers, and Laptop/Notebook computers.

You can use Cross over cable or LAN cable or Ethernet cable.

A network cable allows two computers to exchange packets of information.

1) You purchase the cable 2) You plug it into the network adapter (network card). If the cable directly connects two computers, you need a crossover cable; if the computers are connected via a switch (this lets you connect more than two computers), you need a straight cable. Make sure to measure how much cable you need, and to purchase some extra length, to let you move the computers around freely.
