Hi,

I want to use the USB devices like scanner etc with the wireless notebook,
Is there some adapters available which can make the USB port available over
802.11 or Bluetooth to connect to Windows machine.

Rgds,
BJ

Hi
Regular scanners are Not Ethernet compatible devices.
You have to get a scanner or All In One Combo that is Network capable.

I got some of the links from Google on "All in one combo", but they all
require at least one PC.

However, I wanted to let notebook and USB devices (like external CD drive)
to talk of their own with the help of some independent piece of hardware,

Some more links may help,

Hi
If a All in One device is Network ready you can find an Ethernet to Wireless adapter for
it.
You can not make USB CD Drive Wireless, it needs a computer on one side.

Got one interesting device from Google:
http://www.digi.com/products/usb/anywhereusb.jsp

This can solve most of the problems, the issues are the unavailability of
user reviews and price (too expensive, I can have a economical server in
that cost),



Looking for similar devices like Bluetooth USB Printer Adapter that can also
be used with these peripherals,



Rgds,

BJ

Hi
I agree Interesting device.
Probably Not popular because in most cases a cheaper solution can be found.
