I am using a wireless USB adapter with my PC (I have Windows XP installed). I want to distribute this USB network connection through the LAN card of my PC using a hub so that my three other friends (which are using Windows 7) can also use it on their laptops.

How can I do it? Should I use cross cables or straight one?

It should be easy to use the "Internet Connection Sharing" feature of Windows XP to allow your friends to get onto the internet using your computer as a gateway.

If using a hub/switch you need straight UTP cables.
