Wireless USB Extension from Gefen

Gefen Delivers Wireless USB 2.0 Connectivity up to 100 Feet in Distance

CHATSWORTH, CA - No cables are required to transmit USB 2.0 signals up to 100 feet in distance with the new Wireless USB Extender from Gefen.


This sender/receiver system delivers cable -free USB connectivity and is designed to offer a useful, 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 of yesterday; 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.

MSRP: $399
