Hubless network?

  I am trying to avoid using a hub (hub goes *poof* neither machine can
talk to the Net) to connect 2 internal machines to the net through a

eth1 - connection to box 1 (
eth2 - connection to box 2 (

My route is set up as follows:

Destination	Gateway 	Genmask 	Iface	eth2	eth1	eth0		eth0

router, to the outside world, to the gateway, etc. They both
can even talk to both eth1 and eth2, just not the other box. What am I
