Dear Bobbert

1. Similar to Hubs and Switches Networking Devices which are used for connecting computers (Lan Card - Ethernet Port) physically wired to different Ethernet ports of Hubs and Switches with UTP cables, is it also possible to manufacture Wireless Hubs and Switches ?

Example :

i.e. A wireless LAN Ethernet Card connected to a Wireless 24 Port Ethernet Hub or Wireless 24 Port Ethernet Switch ?

2. Can Cascading possible also in Wireless Switches or Wireless Hubs ?

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,

What you're describing is known as WiFi.

See here for more information:

Using a WiFi adapter with a switch would not work as you're intended, however you could attach a WiFi AP and use that to distribute the signal wirelessly, or (if you don't need enterprise grade hardware), simply purchase a wireless router (I'd suggest Linksys/Cisco or D-Link).

If you have further questions, feel free to ask.

I have nearly two decades of experience in IT, computer repair, and related fields and will attempt to provide the most solid, brand-agnostic advice when it comes time to purchase a new computer, or upgrade an existing machine. I can answer anything from the seemingly basic to the downright complicated - and will do my best to provide this information in a clear and concise manner.


I have been an enthusiast of PC's for many years, and can answer questions about the purchase/use of a new computer or the purchase, installation, and use of upgrades for existing computers. There probably isn't a whole lot related to the home computer that I haven't seen over the years.
