One PC can access the net with USB. But not two. You will need a NIC in each PC. Connect thus:

Modem -> USB PC -> NIC -> other PC. You will connect the two PCs together with a NIC in each PC and turn on Internet Connection Sharing. The other PC will access the Net through the USB PC. And, naturally, both PCs must be turned on.

Since both PCs will need a NIC, the less troublesome method will be to add a router.
