basic hob connection

I've just purchased my first laptop and want to link it via a new hub I've also bought but don't know what the correct connections should be or what type of cabling is required to link this up to my static pc tower with its broadband modem.
Would a bog standard male A to male B suffice to link laptop to hub? I can't seem to find anyone manufacturing a male A to male A cable.
Advice for this elderly novice please.
