Wireless router. Add to the antenna if needed.

Welcome to the forums.

If I understand your question, you have a device with a USB port that you need to connect to a computer 300 feet away? Check out this FAQ.

Thanks for the responses, but I was wondering if i could DIY it, because what I'm trying to do is transmit a Video Signal from a webcam back to my computer.

EDIT: Mabey I could DIY an oscilllator and reciever, but then the problem would be to transmit both the Data + and Data - for the USB signals on one line. Any ideas?

You cannot really transmit USB wirelessly, at least DIY. It is a complex 2 way protocol.

Since it is for a camera, what you can get is a wireless camera kit and a capture card for the computer.

well then all I need is a sender and reciever node on both ends of the transfer right? Just that would present the problem of how to put data onto the signal being sent and how to remove the data on the other end. rite?

EDIT: and the caputure card would not work, because I am on a laptop

You can get USB capture devices.

well, yea... but that would destroy the fun of DIYing it

Thanks, for the responses, but I'm just going to try something else.
