Now, I know about all kinds of wireless NIC Cards and such, but building a computer I wanted to take advantage of the dual on-board NICs but the computer will not be neer the router at all. Since they can make wireless NICs like there nothing. But what about:

A wireless CAT5 Cable? Is this at all possible or has it already been done? ( Yes, I know Wireless and Cable kinda don't belong in the same sentence. )


What do you guys think?

Hi, I'm not certain but it sounds like a wireless Ethernet bridge.

A "wireless" wire?

I think that was made by the same people that invented flightless airplanes.

Haha, I know it sounds weird, but to me it seems do-able.

Not quite sure thats what I'm thinking boopme, I'm think more like what they use for wireless mouse. Like plug the "wireless wire" adapter-thing into the computer and the other end of the "wireless wire adapter-thing into the router and they send signals like a wireless NIC would a router.

Maybe that description is a little more clear.

Seems like what you are thinking of falls under the category of Bluetooth. You can plug in a Bluetooth adapter and a Bluetooth dongle on the recieving end. There are different ranges for it as well.
