    I saw an ad in Australian PC over here for a usb network cable. It had a "thing" in the middle and then a usb plug on each end.

    My question is, could I just use a plug to plug usb cable to "network" my computers??

    It is just a thought at the moment, my pc isn't finished (as it says in the sig).

    No, you need the cable with the "thing" in the middle to network via USB.

    This cable was only $50. I have the cat5 laying around, otherwise network cards are about $20 each.

    I just realised that I have an a7n8xd with built in network cards, will cost me a grand total of ~$20 to do this.
