USB to Ethernet converter

I have a notebook computer with 2 USB 1.1 ports. I also have a self-powered
USB portable hard drive with USB 2.0.
I was wondering if it is possible to transfer data back and forth from the
laptop to the portable hard drive via an unused ethernet port (3Com 3C920
Integrated Fast Ethernet Controller - 10mbit / 100 mbit ), and if it can be
done, is there any speed advantage. I had tried an adapter which gives you 2
USB 2.0 ports via the notebooks PCMCIA slot, but the adapter kept freezing
up my notebook.
