I have a PC that connects to various devices through USB ports. Nothing strange there!
However, one of these devices needs to be located in another building, just across a footpath so no huge distances involved. In fact, It would be possible to run a couple of USB extensions to connect to the kit there.
This, though is not very neat.
Is there a product, and if so, where do I buy it, that provides a remote USB port over a WiFi network. I imagine it would work something like:
A USB dongle I plug into my PC USB port on the PC, that provides WiFi access.
A box / part / bit / thing that has a USB port that the remote equipment plugs into.
To the PC and the remote equipment, this WiFi connection would be invisible, just as if the remote USB port was the one on the PC.
