i think not, they mentioned only file transfer

they mentioned sumtihn about taknig backup of data, dint mention anything about net sharing

but y r u not going for ethernet?

LAN cards cheap, ehternet cable also cheap and it seems you wont be requiring much in the first place

added advantage of good speed

^^ +1 for USB Lan card.....

Why don't you get a Hub and make a Home network? It is going to be the best.

Also you can directly use Crossover Ethernet cable for directly connecting 2 PCs....

USB LAN card + Crossover cable..........This is going to work for you....
