Just wondered if anyone knew if it was possible to network 2 PCs together using USB and if so, how?

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.

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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
