USB to Ethernet Adapter Answered

I need to make a USB to Ethernet Adapter, Is it just a pin-to-pin conversion or do I need something else? I know that Ethernet has 8 pins and USB has 4, I just don't know how I would wire those up.?

Not even _close_ to being pin-to-pin conversion. Completely different communication protocols. You can get Ethernet adapters that attach to the machine via a USB port and suitable drivers. Buying really is the right answer in this case.
