    Just wondered if anyone knew if it was possible to network 2 PCs together using USB and if so, how?
     
  2. Yep its possible, just get one of these:

    or something similar. It's not as fast as ethernet, but it will work.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for the reply. I suppose this will do. I was hoping that there might be a way of directly connecting the PCs in the same way that you can connect PC's using a null modem cable.
     
  4. Or you could even save some money and increase your speed if you don't mind opening up your computers.

    Newegg.com has D-Link 10/100 Ethernet Cards for $9 each. Just get two of those and a crossover cable ($4) and you can go @ 100mpbs for $22.
