To further explain why it wouldn't be suggested. "The IEEE 802.11 standards used a method called Carrier Sense Multiple Access Collision Avoidance
(CSMA/CA). Notice that wired 802.3 networks detect
collisions, whereas 802.11 networks try to avoid
Collision avoidance works by requiring all stations to listen before they transmit a frame. When a station has a frame that needs to be sent, one of the two following conditions occur:
No other device is transmitting - The station can transmit immediately
Another device is already transmitting a frame - The station must wait until the frame in progress has already completed, then it must wait a random amount of time before transmitting its frame."
CSMA/CD was the standard used primarily for hubs or half duplex. Which would only detect when the collision had occured forcing both devices to have to retransmit both frames. Both devices would initiate a random amount of time before transmitting it's respective frame.
While wireless technology is great for some things, it has it's place. It is not recommended for this type of situation.
