Abstract

Disclosed is a method that uses existing VGA (Video Graphics Interface) and/or DVI (Digital Video Interface) cables to transmit high-speed digital WLAN/PAN data; also, the disclosed method enables the radio transceiver and antenna(s) to reside in a computer monitor, instead of the less desirable PC housing. Benefits include a solution that results in better range, throughput and antenna coverage than traditional WLAN/PAN integration methods.
