Okay, in less than a couple days I'll be heading off to college. The dorm rooms in my hall all have a modem in there, but no wireless capabilities. Now, I'm under the assumption that I will just need to plug a router into the modem and I will be good to go. Routers come with installation cd's, but why should I need to install anything. My Macbook seems to pick up every signal around.
So, my question is, will it just work?
At home we have my old desktop as the host computer, but it seems silly that a host computer would be necessary if everyone on the network had laptops.
Now if I went to set a password up, I will need to install software?
