Can the mini-USB port be used as a networking port?

Maybe it is a more basic question of making my PC's USB port act like a Ethernet Device (Network Device)

I already can use my cell phone as an Internet connection on the full size USB, I'd like to be able to use the same cable (USB - mini-USB) to my PC to do the same thing.

As I recall, I don't think so...just use the standard USB port for ethernet...that's what I did when I had Netwalker....

If I remember correctly, mini-USB is for connecting Netwalker to a PC to transfer files, etc...but I could be mistaken....
