Broken Repeater

You have two workstations over 400 feet apart.  The previous Network Administrator has inserted a Repeater at the middle of the two computers.

The cable was Cat5e.  You found out that the repeater is now broken and need to be replaced.  But the replacement Repeater will not get here until next week and it is critical that you re-establish the network connection.

You checked your network supplies closet and found that you have various networking equipments and supplies including routers, switches, hubs, Ethernet NICs, 801.11b USB Network Adapter, various cables and connectors, etc.

What can you use from your existing spare parts or supplies to reconnect the two computers again?  Explain your answer.
