Try making both of your computer's workgroup name the same. (how? go to help and support) Make sure your hub works and both of your computer has no viruses and spywares.

You need to launch the game on one computer, then take out the disk and launch it on the other. Once you launch the game first person selects multiplayer and select the Local LAN You can then create the game. the second person also select multiplayer and LAN and you should see the first persons game. That should work for you if you are using a router that assigns IP addresses and a cat5 connection. is a great place to play online as well.
