i could not find any reference for wireless cd drive,my thoughts were if they had wireless hd then they would also have the cd if there was one available and i do not just type in a site i spend a fair while searching.
so hope you find what you are looking for

but i cant find the wirles cd drives or wireless enclosures so i will have to go with wired unless someone can tell me if it would work

one and a half hours and thats all you came up with

i didnt search 5 mins after that and found actuall wireless harddrives frome 2 big companies

but there isnt any wireless cd rom yet

i dont consider it a good search if you dont come up with anything
you didnt even check that site out because it didnt come up with any wireless harddrives

The best way to do this is with a 802.11 to usb device. Here is one.

http://amos.shop.com/amos/cc/main/cc.../adtg/05080541

A lot of companies make such a device but very few say they support cd drives.

If you give us more information as to what you are trying to do here, perhaps we can help you better. To us it sounds like you have found what you wanted already, but for some reason, you want another options.

i gave you all the information i have

simply

conect a cd drive to a wireless usb adapter
and at the other end of some place have a computer with a wireless adapter so i can use the cd drive


i was going to use
http://www.linksys.com/products/prod...id=36&prid=654
at both ends
but i just wanted to ask and see if it would work just hooking up one and making just a cd drive wireless

but still i want to know does it have to have a built in server like
http://amos.shop.com/amos/cc/pcd/120...8402/ccsyn/260

or can i use the other cheaper one

The linksys device is just a wireless network card for a laptop or desktop. It will not link a cd drive to a wireless network.

The device I gave you a link to will. It will let just about any usb device be used on a wireless network. This is the only one I saw that said it would support a usb cd rom drive. There may be others, but most devices like this only work with usb printers.

You can use the Linksys adapter on both computer to network them by ad hoc.
