Abstract

See full text

A system for simultaneously associating a wireless USB device with multiple wireless USB hosts includes a wireless USB device, a plurality of wireless USB hosts, and means for simultaneously interconnecting the wireless USB device with more than one of the wireless USB hosts. A method for connecting a wireless USB (WUSB) device to multiple WUSB hosts includes the steps of connecting the wireless USB device to a first WUSB host and putting the connection with the first WUSB host into a pseudo sleep mode, scanning a radio frequency spectrum for a new WUSB host that is available for connection to the device, connecting the device to the new WUSB host, and putting the connection with the new WUSB host into a pseudo sleep mode.
