    Wi-Fi or Bluetooth both do that. As could GPRS and 3g/4g USB dongles.

    For pyoko. I have a Vodaphon Stick in one of the Hardware USB Ports for my Computer to operate. I'm on a 12 Month Contract, payed monthly. So I sign on with Vodaphone. Is this what they mean by wireless? This is Sattelite reception as I understand it. I can take the stick with me on away from base activities and plug in at Computer Cafes and Hotels. Reconnect to the ether. What is Wi-Fi? I'm not trained on Computer Science. Just go by feel. Is there a music stick I could put in my Hardware and Play through one of my Media Programmes directly from the USB Port without first downloading onto my hard disc? westwind.

    Yes, westwind. There are routers, such as the Apple Airport routers that are wireless and among the usual ethernet ports and Wi-Fi antenna have sound outputs that plug directly into your sound system. You then play music directly off your computer or phone or other wireless device) to your sound system. No need for a physical connection between your stereo and your wireless devices and laptops etc.

    Your USB dongle from Vodaphone is likely a 3G device, meaning it operates by sending a radio signal to the nearest radio relay station, which gets sent on etc. Just like smartphones do. And other cellular devices.

    In addition to that, it probably has a slot for a microSD card, so it can double as a flash drive as well.
