The SharkPort2/Xport comes with a standard USB-USB network cable. They can all be used as network cables with the proper drivers. The cable that comes with it can have one of three chipsets: Prolific PL-2301, Prolific PL-2302, or Cypress AN2720SC. The drivers for the first two are easily available but the ones for the more powerful Cypress chipset are not. I dug up the latest version which fully supports XP on a 3rd party FTP and they work awesome. I have included proper install instuctions.
