can you bro?
If so, is the computer illiterate able to figure it out?
like in your dorm?
plug a wireless router into the ethernet port in the wall, you better have a password on your wireless network, or other people will use your connection to download music and shit then riaa will be all up in your ass
can you? yes. Do schools like it? no. If you're smart enough will they ever no? no. Are you smart enough? definitely not.
well its not really a dorm. its a school sponsored apt.
so I would like the range to be able to take my laptop into the living room and shit.
well, whatever, same thing
but yeah, you could, but as the artist formerly known as ogre said, if you dont protect the network the school is giving you access to, they will get pissed
Yet again instead of offering useful insite....your a douche.
Yes you can, and school will prolly not like it, just setup the wireless per the wizard that comes with the router, and then make your SSID invisable or just password protect it with some crazy PW
Don't take what Chris said about the riaa lightly.
Even if your wireless gets hacked, it could still cost you some bucks to defend yourself against them.
You can get a nice big spool of cat5 cable for less than the cost of a router, and just run the wire to wherever you need it.
There's people on here who have great deals on the stuff.
I *did* offer useful advice. DONT DO IT. He's an idiot that cannot handle it.
Like others mentioned...just make your SSID invisible, change the default router password, and use WPA. I wouldn't worry too much about the college not liking it. If they happen to discover it...they will most likely simply tell you to turn it off.
No. Install a wireless access point instead. DO NOT install a router of any sort. Your school network already has routers, and the network admins will not love you if the whole school network starts going to your cheap little router to find out how to communicate between computers.
gateways are cheaper to buy than access points. use a gateway, disable dhcp server, and use a crossover cable and use it as an access point.
You don't need to setup a password or make your SSID invincible. Just set up an access list so only NICs/WLAN cards in your MAC list can access your router.
The idea is to hide it from university staff, and the easiest way to do that is hide the SSID.
Then he can just not broadcast the SSID to start with.
That's what I meant.
can someone please tell me just how to hook this up in the first place? I have no idea man
You know that little booklet that came in the box? Read it.
Imagine how much faster that would have solved his problem to begin with...
yea, but then we wouldn't have this much fun.
