A crossover cable is the thing I linked. Go find one that's compatible with Windows 8.1 and you're set.

A crossover cable is an ethernet cable with a couple of the twisted pairs switched around to allow for direct connection.

Standard ethernet cables will only allow connection through a router or switch.

Supposedly you can use a straight patch cable to connect two computers together. Never tried it myself...

It has to be a crossover patch cable, or possibly some NIC's that can figure out you're trying to crossover and switch the pin layout in software, but that seems highly unlikely.

Youd be surprised how common they are actually... Though yes, just to be safe get a crossover patch cable. or if you're feeling rather crafty you could just switch the cables yourself on an existing ethernet cable that you have.
