***edit*** I haven't looked at the airport units in a while, but think an airport extreme is probably more along the lines of what I want to use. How do I edit my title? /edit **edit 2** wow, I'm dumb. I just looked at the airport extreme page. Should be perfect. I'll leave this up if anyone foresees any problems with this. But feel free to delete this thread. Some of you might remember that I'm heading to Afghanistan early next year. Well I sold my laptop after getting the iPad and was curious if this set up is possible. Here is the scenario we had in Iraq. Our unit purchased a satellite to share an Internet connection with about 130 people. CAT 5 cable was routed to our living area and wired into a router in our room that 4 of us connected our laptops to directly with Ethernet cables. Assuming we have a similar set up in Afghanistan (word has it we might be on a FOB like we were in Iraq), would I be able to hook up an airport extreme to the router to give my iPad wifi connectivity? The other benefit would be that I could have my iP4 to do video chat with my girlfriend and parents. Secondly, if this is even possible, is there a way to password protect the wifi signal? Say, access the settings using a friends laptop and put a password on it so it's only accessible to me? I really don't want to purchase another laptop just for this, especially if we end up not having Internet in our rooms.
