Is there a wireless usb hub in a existence?

I want a wireless usb hub that transfers usb device connection wirelessly back to the pc. i.e. plug in a wired keboard or headset to the hub then over bluetooth/ir/wifi transmitit back the the pc across the room. Google only gives me usb Wi-Fi adapters. Same with Amazon. The only product I can find even remotley close is a product from china on eBay. Please dont lecture me on latency. I know it would be high.

You might be able to use a powerline adapter? I know you can convert usb to Ethernet. But iv never tried it over a powerline adapter.

However you use to be able to get a wireless usb hub. However I don't think they make them anymore.

Because bluetooth does the same thing with less latency.

They exist but they're difficult to find. Try searching for "USB transmitter" and you'll get some results for discontinued products that seem to have worked. Reviews are mixed, but for certain USB device types it's fine. You could also use a software solution over WiFi and use a basic single-board computer (e.g. a Raspberry Pi) as the hub. It's rather expensive but the USB2BT is an option for USB HIDs; I do not know if a hub or headset would work however.

There are options out there, but hardware is expensive and tricky to find. Ebay isn't very helpful because it's flooded with so many Chinese wireless adapters or short-range transmitters for cars that contain a USB port for charging.

Powerline is evil in my experience and I would advise avoiding it if possible. Plus, it doesn't do a great job eliminating all cable clutter.

I think a lot of USB to Ethernet adapters just use standard CAT5e cables since they're designed for such long distances. Other connections like HDMI can also be crammed down Ethernet, though judging by the single RJ45 jack there I think those devices are a bit more complicated than a dumb adapter that uses better twisted pairs.
