Ik kwam bij Overclocker's Workbench deze info tegen over een USB to USB netwerk dingetje, waarmee je eenvoudig een LAN kunt bouwen:
Have you ever thought of using the USB port to replace the conventional laplink cable using Parallel port ? The answer is that you can now do that with this product Magic Toplan of Skywell Taiwan.
With this product, you can connect up to 127 computers through a USB hub. The distance between two machines can be within the range of 10m. It's more suitable for small networks with 20 PCs.
Advantages of this product is that it's very suitable to use with notebooks for fast transfer of files. The speed is almost near to 10Mbps. The setup procedure is also similar to of a network card. Currently it only has drivers for Win95/98, no drivers for NT, Linux and Mac. A test reveals that it only takes 10 sec to transfer a 4Mb MP3 file from two machines running celeron 450 on a BX board with Apollo pro chipset. The speed is much faster than using LL3.
