What is a USB network link (bridge)? I bought one, but when connecting two laptops they still cannot see each other. How can I do this?

Please supply more information. What exactly did you buy? How are you trying to connect your laptops? Be as specific as you can and edit your question, otherwise we really can't help you. – slhck Aug 18 '11 at 9:57

Your question is very vague.

There are two different things I can think of two different solutions from what you wrote, and not sure which one is accurate.

If you purchased a USB <-> USB cable, you will need to use special software to transfer files under most circumstances. For example, if this is a Windows machine, use Windows Easy Trasnfer.

If you purchased 2x USB <-> Ethernet converters and an ethernet cable, you will need to use a cross over cable (unless you have automatic sensing adapters), or a switch and then set up networking in a normal way (easiest way is to use the wizard).
