Wireless USB extenders are a easy way to get more range from a USB port with no wires. The way they work is a wireless connection is made from a computer to the extender, it will then allow a USB device to be connected and the data transmitted back to and from a computer.
A standard wired USB cable can run up to 16 feet, while a wireless extender can run up to 30-50 feet in theory. The distance a wireless connection can travel will depend on any obstacles such as walls or other barriers.
The uses of a wireless USB extender are endless from connecting to a printer in another room to sharing a external hard drive, or even sharing a movie to a USB enabled smart TV.
As with any wireless device dead zones, interference, and range can make wireless act up sometimes. Anyone who has used wireless knows the limitations of wireless devices and will know whether such a product will work for them or not.
