Nothing overly important, I'm just curious if it can be done

Cut end of a cable, add wireless connector to either side of said cable, wireless connect. Not quite sure what the name of this would be, so on my search I return to the ever resourceful gamefaqs.

Maybe it's more complicated than I realize, but just emulating a wire over a wireless connection seems like it would be useful.

For what exactly?

To connect through wireless you need a wireless router and connect all devices to that. If the computers don't have inbuilt support for wireless, you can use a USB wireless card or a PCI one.

They make things like that. You plug an ethernet cable into a wireless transmitter and then login to it with an IP address, almost like a router, to configure the wifi name and password. One of my roommates had one.
Something similar to this.
