    Hi all,
    im sure this topic has been mentioned before but i was unable to find the answer i need.
    im not a very tech savy person so please bear with me.
    im going on a holiday soon and i know the hotels i will stay at will charge me for wifi on each device. im travelling with my wife so that will be 2 iphones, 2
    ipads, and my macbook!

    i understand that i can use an airport express to create a wifi network in my hotel room and the hotel will only charge me for 1 device, but i have no idea on how to set it up.
    can someone please explain to me how to setup the airport express to that.

    thanking you in advance

    You could just use internet sharing on your Macbook (under Sharing in Sys Pref) and all the other devices connect to it. No AE needed.

    Setting up the AE will depend on the network link coming through. Use of the internet is often secured through webpage login and this has cause problems for me in the past. It may be possible and maybe not.

    That won't work. The hotel will still recognize you have multiple devices and each will require a wifi login and password form a login web page.
