    Hey guys,
    I will be attending a summer program and will be living in a college dorm in Nebraska that has a wired internet connection (i think through a wall jack using a cable). Is there any way i can convert wired to wireless connection to use with my wireless devices (phone and especially ipod touch). I do NOT have a laptop.

    Do u guys think the Apple airport express would work? Pls help. Thanks.

    Well the router wont always work.

    The Techs at your school would know if there was a router plugged in, so start by configuring the router at home to have a hidden SSID and secure the network.

    There will definately be an IP address conflict because there are more than 1 jacks for ethernet, and you cant put a switch (what all the ethernet cables connect to) behind a router.

    Get a Laptop would be my only suggestion
