I have Cable TV Montgomery (CTM) in Montgomery County, MD. Downloads are through the cable modem, uploads are through the telephone. I just got a second computer and want to set up a LAN.

Has anyone in this area set up a LAN? (Arlington, VA cable is the same company.) I don't want to reinvent the wheel. What do I need? CTM will not offer technical support, but they told me I do not need a router, just a hub and that I will need a proxy server. Can anyone confirm this from personal experience?

Any suggestions on what hardware to buy? Or which proxy server to use?
