You wouldn't you use a networking adapter, since that allows computers to connect on-line. You'll need a network hub(http://www.belkin.com/networkusbhub/) like this to connect your USB devices to your network.

All you have to do is...add those devices as shared devices on the network.

The only issue is that the computer must be in hamluis's case is that the computer must be on for it to network, since it relies on the computer to share the resources. In my case the major issue is the price as it costs money but doesn't rely on other device. Either case does work.
