    I do not think a network connection can be established through a USB cord. You can put 2 USB network adapters in and use a CAT5 line to connect the computers. Do you really know how to program?

    I have done this with a special USB lead (connections mirror imaged at either end) and a program called PC linq or PC link or something like that. It was cheap, quick and simple. PC linq sell the lead and the program. Try a search on Google

    The easiest way to do it is to use CAT5 cables and set up a a basic network.

    I'm not sure why you would want to connect them through USB.

    I wanted to do it through USB because i thought it would be super convenient. Setting up a real network is a lil harder though but bleh, i was just a kid :D
