anyone got a good (CHEAP) method of doing wireless serial communication? ?

trying to do a PC controlled fireworks display and i don't want to have to buy a 100 foot serial cable to control relay box that i'm planning on using (that takes direct serial communication)?

you could use a xbee wireless serial link... or you could use a usb ethernet extender, and a usb serial adapter.

I can highly recommend wireless serial adapters from www.usconverters.com
You could hack a linksys router to get direct access to its serial port and then reflash it with ddwrt and set up some software on that

gonna put that as the best answer...as my independent research points to the xbee as well
thanks
