Networking with XP

Hi. I use a network connection to get onto the internet. This works fine. I have also got a new USB 2 cable that will connect 2 computers together. It will do this as a bridge cable (for file and data transfer) and is software switchable to a USB network cable. The software installs this and you can choose which connection you want. However when this software is installed I find that I cant use my ethernet connection. This is with the setting for a bridge cable. My old USB 1 bridge cable (not network capable) was no problem. Any ideas please. Win XP Pro. Laptop. Ta Dennis
