How to Connect Two Computers Using USB
USB, also known as Universal Serial Bus, is one of the most useful computer-related technologies ever developed. USB is used to connect printers, keyboards, digital cameras and even MP3 players to your computer. You can also connect two computers using USB.
1). Turn on both of the computers. Log in to Windows using an account with administrator privileges.
2). Insert one end of the USB bridge cable into a USB slot on one computer, and the other end of the bridge into the second computer.
3). Install the driver software for the USB bridge cable when the computers prompt you to do so. If you do not have driver software for the USB bridge cable, you may be able to download it from the cable manufacturer.
4). Choose to install the USB bridge cable either as a link adapter or a network adapter. If you install it as a link adapter, you will only be able to transfer files back and forth. If you install it as a network adapter, you will have full network functionality.
5). Complete the software installation. Your two computers should now be connected.
