Wireless P2P USB??

Dear Experts,

I want to find out if something I am looking for exists.

Imagine a USB cable used for data transfer from one computer to another.

Now imagine that connection wirelessly. It works by plugging dongles in both computers, the connection is p2p. No network cards, no TCP/IP.

Does such a product exist? if so, can you please advise where I can purchase.

Many Thanks,

Bluetooth external hard drive systems do exist but the interface is simply too slow so they've not caught on.

Could this be an alternative to the sort of thing you're looking for? It uses TCP/IP.

I know I didn't say it but in my scenario, imagine one of those computers being an external hard drive with no O/S - just a file system. It would not be able to support bluetooth drivers? I was hoping that I could connect my external hard drive to the USB dongle to then wirelessly transmit data to the attached computer the other end. If that makes sense.

Basically, in its simplest form, i want to connect an external hard drive to a computer without the cable. But I don't want to broadcast it on my network, I just want a P2P connection.

Am curious about this external HD, if it had not been formatted by an OS and was not "talking" to an OS in order to read the files.... how could it retrieve or copy them.
Not saying it couldn't be done, just have no idea how it could be done

external hard drive ... its just an NTFS file system. You plug it into a computer, acts like a plug and play device. Like you plug a USB pen into a laptop, its just files and folders.

anyway I think i found something - http://gadgets.softpedia.com/gadgets/Computer-Peripherals/Cables-Unlimited-Wireless-USB-Kit-with-Transmitter-and-Receiver-with-Base-9844.html

yes but you need an OS to read/write surely?
Agreed that the device needs nothing more than firmware but it's pretty useless without communicating with an OS.
But you have found something, cool

The computer has an O/S. tghe other end is an external hard drive!

But as per my previous post, the company went under so there is no technical support for it

The claim is that "USB devices work as if plugged directly into PC".
