    Is it possible to make a hidden Computer-to-Computer network in Airport? I can't seem to find any information on here or on google about doing this.. :\

    Thanks

    I don't think so. Also WEP is the only encryption that can be used as well.

    Not really worried about the protection part of it.. It's just that we aren't allowed to have wireless internet in our dorms and I'd like to be able to share my ethernet internet to my iPhone (and use the Remote app to control iTunes).

    And the RA's that go roaming around looking for unauthorized wifi hotspot(s) aren't that bright about computers. So if I could hide the SSID broadcasting that'd be pretty sweet.

    I did use mroogle... And I couldn't find anything.. Maybe I was making too specific of a search?

    And more importantly: If you signed an agreement to stick by the rules, going out of your way to break the rules because "the RA's are not that bright" is not only dishonest, but just inviting trouble.
