Gefen introduces Wireless USB 2.0 extender
No cables are required to transmit USB 2.0 signals up to 100 feet in distance with the new Wireless USB Extender from Gefen.

The new sender/receiver system delivers cable-free USB connectivity and is designed to offer a plug and play method of removing USB devices from the computer station. It is effective in extending typical computer peripherals such as keyboard/mouse and printer with full operational functionality using a radio transmission based on 802.11a, b, g, n and Extreme USB technologies.

An ideal solution for accessing the computer and powering devices in remote locations where running wires is undesirable, the cable-free extension solution transmits data at speeds up to 54 Mbps, providing an attractive alternative to wired solutions.

The product requires no installation of USB drivers so the set-up is simplified, requiring a short cable connection of the sender to the computer, and the wireless 4-port hub/receiver to the extended USB devices. A wireless transmission between sender and receiver replaces the cables; 5v power supplies drive local and remote operation.

The Gefen Wireless USB Extender works well for cross-platform computer systems including Mac OSX, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Linux.
