    what you need -
    1- 24 Port Switch
    1- 8 port switch
    26 - Straight crimped CAT5e Cables according to lengths from switch to PC.

    1 - Cat5e from 24 port -8 port switch.

    then define IP address for the LAN cards from 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.0.26

    keep subnet mask 255.255.255.0 for all

    Change computer description of each PC.
    say "PC 1 to PC 26"

    Keep workgroup for all PCs common,say "LAN"


    This is all you need to do_Ofcourse this is very basic ,but then i am a bit lazy to explain in detail...lol
