I used to own a LapLink USB cable and it let you connect 2 PCs with it and share an internet connection and such. I was wondering if there is any way to do that with a Belkin Easy Transfer Cable...? :confused:

you would think usb networking would be part of the usb protocol like it is with firewire and no chips are required

Sorry it took so long to reply - no internet for a little while. Well, I will look to see what chip is in the blasted thing... And yes, networking sould be part of the USB protocol, but cable length would be thwe main constraint.
