I am in a setting that there are 3 systems that connect at a central HUB, right now the cables that connect are the standard RJ45 Cables, Would performance increase with Crossover or Rollover Cables?

Also this network of 3 machines does not connect to the internet and is for File Sharing purposes and Printer Sharing. If I wanted to set up Static IP would I have to declair a DNS or is that optional? Have not tried anything yet, was just looking for some idea of what to do. I have networked my house but it had a DNS I could use. Thanks again.

No going to another cable would not increase performance. If your hub is not auto-detecting on the ports than it would actually cause it not to work if you used a cross over cable.

As for the network, you can use the hosts file for name resolution if you do not have a DNS server.
