Alright, I want to try the home router route, since I can't get anywhere with the cross cable. Do you have a good reference to follow?
Set both computers to dhcp, and plug them into the router. They will get an ip address assigned by it. You can then try to connect by name, if that does not work look at the ip address and connect with that.
