    network USB

    Is it possible to connect two computers using USB ( ? ) ,and then acces the internet on comp 1 if comp 2 has the cable of internet plugged in.
    A simple yes or no is enough, just that im not going to spend hours trying something that will never work.

    Thx in advance,

    Ganglylamb.

    Yes.

    Refer to
    this for information about the hardware side of it. This would simply be a case of using Internet Connection Sharing once the initial network has been set up.
