Sending data through wifi

Hello, I would like if it’s possible to send and receive data obtained, for example, from some sensors placed on the beaglebone black to another computer or other device, I searched but sadly did not find a lot of solutions, I would like to know if this is doable using a wifi dongle, since it’s much cheaper than buying other devices such as an X-Bee.

Thanks in advance for your help.

It is absolutely possible. You just need to figure out how to format your data to send over wifi. I send MJPG frames as a stream over wifi on my blog here You could take a similar approach to send anything you wanted. In my example, you can think of the frames as sensor data I am sending out over wifi to one or more computers. I used 0MQ to manage the low level network/sockets, but you are free to work at that level as well.
