Specs: Windows 7
I just moved my office to the basement, now i need to be able to show photo's and other things to handicap customer for my small business. At first I just thought I would show them on my husbands laptop but I don't have any of my software on it and I would have to have jump drive with all images on it. I really need to have access to my computer. I already have 2 monitors hooked to my desktop PC. I want to know if there is anyway to hook up a wireless monitor, keyboard and mouse to a room directly upstairs from the office in basement. Any help would be appreciated.

That doesn't sound like it will work. You may have to get a used PC or laptop and then run that wirelessly upstairs. That's easy to remedy if you have a wireless router

Never heard of a wireless monitor.

How are you getting internet access? And do both computers get it?

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

There is a type of KVM switch that allows you to have more than one keyboard, monitor, and mouse connected to a single computer. Something like that would work for your situation.

However, I'm not sure what the maximum length you can do K/B, mouse and monitor is. You would need to research that first and the figure out if you could located your upstairs workstation within the maximum limit.
