Hi,

Is there an device available to make monitor/mouse/keyboard wireless using the existing equipment.
I can imagine a sender/receiver which sends monitor output from the computer and receives mouse/keyboard input from the user.

Anyone experiences in this?

Thanx,
Alexander.

The currently available wireless options are infrared (IR) and radio frequency (RF).  For IR, there are mice and keyboard combinations like the Airboard, but IR is limited to line-of-sight.  RF devices are not limited to line-of-sight, but may have range problems and interference from other RF devices.  I have used a Gyration mouse and keyboard out to 15 feet and am satisfied with it.  For video, the bandwidth requirements are too high.  You can send an image with a 320x240 resolution @ 15 Hz using RF (ie, webcams), but 640x480 @ 60Hz will overload it.

the tech specs for this brand. They and others have "wireless" monitors.

most KB/mice are IR or RF like callandor stated.

What I meant is to keep the current monitor. Not to buy a new one.
So what I guess from Callandor is that there is not enough bandwith to support a 640x480 @60Hz or up.
I have to wait a few more years?

Actually, the KatunAV product looks like it is an add-on network device using their own modified 802.11b transmitter/receiver to send video to an existing monitor or projector.  Here's a review of it: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,4149,933366,00.asp
But at $999, you could probably buy a laptop, connect it using wireless and get the same results.  The only inexpensive products right now are the 2.4GHz webcams.
