Hello, don't know much about wireless yet, so can someone please tell
me if these are possible:
1) I want to connect a (normally) *wired* IP ethernet camera to a
wired router about 80m away clear line of sight. Is there a pair of
wireless dongly things I can plug into the lan sockets of both to take
the place of the lan cable?
2) Similar setup, but connecting a bog standard normally wired USB
webcam wirelessly to a computer. Again, the wireless link serving the
same function as a USB cable.
I know one can buy wireless cameras and routers, but I just want to
replace the cables with wireless dongles type things that plug into
the back of the original wired gadgets instead of the cable.

Sure. You want a point-to-point bridge. Cable a wireless access point
to the wired router; cable a wireless Ethernet (client) bridge to the
camera; and setup the wireless connection.
Not AFAIK. You'd need a wireless Ethernet (client) bridge with a USB
port and a webcam driver, which I don't think exists.
