Why USB?[edit]

Can anyone explain why "USB" is used in the name of this standard? Does it have anything to do with wired USB other than conceptually? Can wireless USB adapters be plugged into a USB port, say? --Jfruh 19:04, 1 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Wireless usb uses much of the same technologies in USB but wirelessly, such as speed modes. Wireless USB would have a similar method used in WiFi, that it will not have wires and detect hubs wirelessly. I'd say there will be USB to Wireless USB adapters, pcimcia and the like.--x1987x June 30, 2005 16:05 (UTC)


I was looking for information on USB, when I stumbled upon this article. While good for a first edit as can be seen by this talk page, this article needs some work, it is not comprehensive enough. Dessydes

Merge or not?[edit]

So we really do need to work on this merge effort, or at least reach a consensus of some kind. This seems a complicated history, so will take some untangling. It does seem that if, as the lead implies (any source??) Certified Wireless USB refers to this one, then it sure sounds like there should be two articles for two names of the same thing? That one has almost no citations and some questionable language (especially if it is now effectively defunct?) On the other hand, it seems the Media Agnostic USB says it "should not be confused" with the certified one. Does not say how they differ. If that is an entirely new protocol, the question is if this one is only to describe a specific protocol, or the concept of all wireless USB protocols in general. Usually I prefer having one properly sourced article first, and only splitting when it gets too long. Media Agnostic clearly is not too long yet. But help is needed, please.

I have now done this. Hungryce (talk) 23:26, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
