USB Networking Laptop and PC???? Possible?

WEll, i have a question. i really don't know because i can't seem to find any information on this subject. My laptop doesn't have a nic card and neither does my pc and i don't have a hub nor a crossover cable. can i network them together via a USB?
thanks in advance.

RE: USB Networking Laptop and PC???? Possible?

You'll need a usb to usb "data bridge" cable. Transfer rate is 8Mbs and you can find them for approx $25.00. Just go to a search engine like google and type in "usb to usb data bridge" for retailers
