One of the many uses of wireless USB technology is the ability to create wireless USB hubs. With a wireless USB hub, you can have your computer in one room, your USB devices in another, and connect them wirelessly while still maintaining the rated speed (up to 480 MB/s) of USB. If this set-up would be convenient for you, you need to get a wireless USB kit.

    Connect the desired USB devices to the USB hub and prepare them for use. (Plug them in to power, and turn them on. Varies per device.)
