I don't think it will work like that . Here the modems that have both USB and Ethernet have different MAC for each port , with would require seperate accounts(pay twice) . I would recommend you stay away from USB . While most have no problem once in awhile there is a problem . If you have Ethernet NIC use it . After all it was made for that . Now connecting the two computers . I would recommend a router wired or wireless , I perfer wired . With a print server built in . Make sure if you printer is USB/parral the router/server has the approperate port . Yhe router will be from $40 USD and up depending on what bells and whistles you get . You could for go the print server and just port you printer through you primary printer . But that Machine would have to stay on to print . A router with DHCP ,which all have , makes setup easy and painless . Just my thoughts .
