Best Answer

Generally, you can't, unless you have a router or a switch to control the network. Any time two or more computers are linked together, it is considered a network, which requires that every device have addresses unique to that device. These addresses are used by the router or switch to control where data flows.

You can't use a USB port to network two computers unless you have an USB/Ethernet dongle connected to it. You can't network two computers with just a USB cable.
