    I have a 1 GB file I want to transer from 1 PC to another, without a network connection. Can I use a USB cable to connect them?

    Thanks

    I am not aware of a way to do it. Doesn't mean that it can't be done. I do know that you can network with using USB network adapters.

    Provided you have Microsloth OSes it is do-able but it requires a usb-to-usb cable. They’re pricey and a more practical solution might be to pick up a crossover Ethernet cable and a couple of second-hand NICs.

    I would image if they're made in the past couple years, they've already got NICs in them. Crossover cable would do it.

    Or, it's a hell of an excuse to pick up a 1.0 Gig thumb drive! ;f
