    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about general network setup. – Frank May 25 '14 at 16:30
  • Yes, it is possible to connect two computers using a cable and create a local network on which to play multiplayer games (including Diablo). That's more of a networking how-to question than a gaming one, though. Depending on the card in your laptop/pc you may need a crossover cable rather than a standard ethernet cable. – TZHX May 25 '14 at 16:47
  • do you even google? I bet there are enough answers on "how to connect 2 pcs for local gaming". Or you can just play it via Battle.Net – Novarg May 25 '14 at 19:24

If you use a crossover cable, you can directly connect two computers without having to use an ethernet switch. This would allow you to play Diablo (and any other multiplayer games) between the two computers.
