My WIFI has gone down and I urgently need to transfer files from my laptop hard drive to my desktop m/c. The files are to large to fit on my memory stick and the laptop can only read CDs and DVDs. I have a usb cable that I could connect the two m/cs would this be possible? Or what else could I do?

The easiest solution is a crossover patch-cable that fits the network socket

Or a USB Bridge Cable.

MMmmm! But the network cable is only about £5.00

As little as 70p before P&P from Ebuyer for a crossover ethernet cable. Easy to set up if you don't need to share a net connection.
