Usage Examples

Now we will show you some real examples of WUSB usage. As mentioned, if your PC doesn’t have native WUSB support, you will need to buy and install a WUSB dongle, device shown in Figure 1.

The same thing goes for regular USB peripherals; you need to “convert” them into WUSB using a WUSB hub, like the one in Figure 2 from IOGEAR. The good thing about a hub is that you can connect several USB peripherals to them at the same time, saving the cost of additional antennas for each individual product. In this example we have a printer connected to the WUSB hub, so the connection between the PC and the printer is made without the use of wires.

WUSB allows you to connect your PC to your video monitor without the use of wires, which is a terrific application. ASUS has announced an LCD monitor with native WUSB connectivity, as shown in Figure 3. You can connect any kind of monitor using a WUSB adapter, shown in Figure 4.

In Figure 5 we have another example, this time an external sound card with native WUSB support. By the way, we saw a demo of this sound card in conjunction with the wireless monitor from Figure 3 and audio and video were always in synch.
