Not needed, you can buy such a dongle from netgear for at least half a
decade or longer. I was out of ports on the 4 port in the shop, so I
I interpreted B's comment as pure snark of the variety inspired by
Richard's old-school and sometimes purely fictional and/or volitional
and/or self-imposed constraints. But maybe you're right, and the guy's
(B) been living in a closet for the last decade or so with the brooms
and the mops.
I think this all goes back to discovering a USB-USB device that would
allow connecting two computers with the same
topology/advantages/disadvantages as an "RS232C null modem". It did not
work out-of-the-box in the manner *I* expected. The ramifications
pointed to voids in my expertise. I pursued further as an *EDUCATIONAL*
experience. As I (being past three score and ten) have said before "If
retirement isn't for education, what use is it."
I have no desire nor need for a traditional LAN. Also shoe leather
express with a flash drive has actual idiosyncratic advantages.
