Traveling network access

by Volker Weber

I used to travel with an Airport Express to extend an Ethernet wire to a full wireless network with IPv4 NAT. This lets you access the Internet with a number of devices hidden behind a common MAC address. Login once to your hotel LAN, and then enjoy Internet connection for all your devices.

Now I am trying a Belkin dual band travel router which gives me 5 GHz in addition to 2.4 GHz. "_nomap" means that Google should not be recording the access points location. When I am using my AirPort Express, Google thinks I am in Florida. Too many people have reported the AP as being at Lotusphere.

The Belkin device is smaller than the Airport Express but not as tidy. It needs a microUSB wire with 5V/1A. I have nicer power supplies than the one which ships with the router. I will probably use the Nokia charger.

Braucht man für die Belkin (oder Airport Express) einen Windows- oder Mac-Rechner zum konfigurieren oder get das komplett am Browser?

Suche ein Lösung mit der ich im Hotel mit dem iPad ans Netz kann wenn es nur Ethernet aber kein WLAN gibt.

Danke!

Mit Web Browser auf 192.168.2.1. Natuerlich auch anpassbar. AXP hat jetzt aber auch eine iOS App.

Kennst jemand eine Lösung, mit der man kostenpflichtiges Hotel-WLAN (Login ueber Browser, merkt sich die Mac-Adresse) auf mehrere Geraete verteilen kann?

Man nehme einen WLAN Client und einen WLAN Router. Und ein kurzes Ethernet-Kabel.

Danke ... iOS App ist natürlich ein nettes Feature. Dann wird's bei mir wohl die AXP werden. Dann bleiben die Äpfel unter sich ;-)
