No, just two 100MBit network cards ($10 a piece) and a cross over
cable. As long as you don't want to connect more than two machines
this is the cheapest (and probably fastest) solution. If you want
to add a third machine, you still don't need a router: A hub for
about $50 will do it. A router is only neccessary if you want to
"route" packets from one subnet to a different subnet, which is
not the case in your setup.
