    if you're talking about playing LAN games on the same network, all you have to do is make sure that you are on the same subnet. and have your hubs connected to eachother.

    theres many ways to accomplish this.

    make your router have a different LAN address than his but same subnet (ie 192.168.1.1 on his and 192.168.1.150 on yours) then connect the two routers together. You might want to turn off DHCP server on one of your routers though. Have fun.

    You need to have a wireless capable router if one of you are going to connect wirelessly. or both of you have wireless capabilitys you can skip the router.
