I was wondering if there was a way to have the arduino wirelessly connect to a pc's usb so that the entire connection (including the programming of the arduino) was wireless. For example, I have an arduino mini, so between it and the mini usb adapter I'd like to insert RF links so that these two modules don't have to be physically connected.
For a quick experiment, I tried using parallax's 433 MHz transceiver package:http://parallax.com/Store/Microcontrollers/BASICStampModules/tabid/134/txtSearch/27980/List/1/ProductID/111/Default.aspx?SortField=ProductName%2cProductName
and basically connected a tx/rx pair of rf links in place of a wire. Unfortunately, I received an error saying the IDE was expecting a response of 0x14 instead of 0x00.
I thought I may have seen something similar done already, but I was unable to come up with a result using the forum search. Any help is appreciated!
