Micheal is close, but a router would be more than you need both in capabilities and in setup. A router is more like a traffic cop that tells where data can and cannot go. I use one, but even being a certified MSCE my router will act up and just not communicate. Then it's "troubleshoot city" and sometimes I end up having to reconfigure the network to get it going again. If you are real concerned about security, or need a dedcatted DHCP and or WINS server then a router is the way to go.
I would recommend an ethernet hub, which is similar to a router, but lets traffic connect across without giving or denying permissions.
Simple, easy quick.
Delkin makes a real cheap effective one that's readily available.
