Wireless USB adapter
Gefen Inc. has launched a wireless USB 2.0 extender based on the ExtremeUSB technology, which makes it possible to interface with USB 2.0 and 1.1 devices up to 100 feet from the computer. The 802.11g-based adapter works with Mac OS X, Windows and Linux, and consists of a wireless transponder that plugs into one of the host system's USB ports and a four-port USB hub that can be placed within normal WiFI range and serve connected USB devices. Hagai Gefen, president and CEO of Gefen says "Subsequent versions will also support multiple receiver hubs connected to one sender unit, allowing a same time distribution that delivers data real-time with no cables."
The current setup boasts a maximum data transfer rate of 70 Mbps, and is priced at $400.
