    Hi.
    A RJ45 dongle doing full duplex to LED/photodiode; or a USB that transceives modulating LED light ?
    Like to optically link LAN or USB at line of sight within a room over the air ? -No optic fiber involved-

    How complex would be to brew one to achieve 100Mb/s ? Visible, IR or UV.

    "RS232" is a misnomer. They should have said "UART"

    The device uses a fTDI FT232R USB-UART interface chip.

    When you plug the dongle into a USB port on your PC, the device enumerates as a serial COM port. You can then perform single character serial communication transfers as you would on a COM port.
