Hey,

My macbook air usb port is out of function. Do any of you know about an wireless usb port/adapter out there that can be streamed through wifi/bluetooth?

I would just buy the part on eBay and install it myself. Shouldn't be too difficult. Unless of course you problem is the logic board, then you have a real problem.

That aside don't recall seeing anything that's wireless USB. Maybe you can get a router with USB port and share the attached device?

Apples own AirPort Extreme has a USB Port that can be used to make printers and Hard drives wireless. The Airport Express version only allows wireless Printing off of its USB port. Both of them support USB Hubs.
