    3. Create a Wi-Fi Network.

    Because i think that was only just for SSH. You can get Wifi (Wireless Internet) the other guy was talking about just a Ad-Hoc connection for SSH.

    i remember reading another thread about this except i believe it was just for ssh. i think i read in teh description it wouldn't work with 1.1.2 firmware. thats what i have. so willl this work with it? Just a quick question, becasue I have wifi at my house now, but not in my dorm room, and i plan on going back to school tommorow. if this works with 1.1.2, then i wont have to worry about buying a router. and is the range still as effect about as a router? like i have wireless g card in my desktop or will i have to stand 5 feet or less to get a signal?

    I have no idea, the signals a little bit weaker than the Average Router, but at least if your close to home/office you will get the signal.

    Yeah, the other one just talks about SSH.
