Yes, if don't have a switch and you have different computers connected
to different interfaces you might not be able to use a bonded interface.
Bonding of interfaces is generally used to get higher throughput
(supposedly) to the network for heavily loaded servers.

Either setting up a routed (using subnets or separate network addresses)
network or binding the interfaces together as a bridge is the way you
would need to go.
