    I have a few products....usb keypads, buttons to a switch etc and want to control one computer from a distance of about 50-100 metres.

    I have figured how to display the computers screens with wireless HDMI.

    How could I do the same with the usb wirelessly?

    There doesn't seem to be wireless usb to do the job?

    Thanks

    There are a number of Networked USB Hubs available, the link to the PC you're controlling could be WiFi, then either a wired (or wireless) USB Keyboard/mouse to the USB Hub.

    Here's a link to an FAQ on the Belkin USB Hub, which implies it works with Keyboards and Mice.

    However, I've not tried this personally, so I've no idea if it works correctly.

    Well, that's how it should work - but as I mentioned, I've not personally tried it.
