Now that I got your attention I need to know how to share the internet using a USB cable or if it’s even possible.

Do I need to bridge my 1394 connection to my nic or how does it work?

from what i gatherd, you need a usb networking kit thingy with a dongle in the middle to make the network for ICS to work.
no chance of using a couple of cheap NIC's ?

or if I had just a normal usb cable could I move files over to another computer? doesn't have to be able to share the net just move the files.

usb on its own don't suport networking, the few google FAQ's i found all had a dongle box from a usb network kit. its easier doing a direct connection for a few simple file shares, but i think you need a paralell cable to do that.

USB network kits cost about £30, 2 NIC's and a crossover cable will cost about £20 -£25

its for a laptop so hauling around a crossover and an extra nic just isn't a real viable option and I can't just pop open peoples computers and say hey I need to put this in here to do what I need to do.


so what your saying is I need a special USB cable with a box that tells it to be a network cable?

a cat 5 crossover cable to directly connect to anouther pc, or unless you wanted this as a thing that would not move then you can buy a router that has a USB net connection
