I am thinking of purchasing airport express, how does it work? I don't understand it.
This will explain it: Apple - AirPort Express
My question mainly is: Can i setup my wireless network on it, lets say i visit my parents place. can i bring this airport express to my parents place using my own wireless network instead of theirs? is this what this means? or am i wrong? lol.
Depending on their router you could participate in WDS, effectively extending your parents network.
You could also attach the express to the back of your parents router with a crossover cable and then create your own network.
okay i see. glad i asked before i made the purchase.
Yes. For example, I take one with me when I travel, so I can wirelessly connect to the internet in hotel rooms that have only an ethernet cable. I can also use it to play iTunes on any stereo speakers I plug into it. Once you set up your network, that network is usable wherever you plug it in, whether connected to the internet or not.
ohh, i see. okay. do you think its worth it for someone who doesn't travel but might end up going to live in a dorm/apt with a school internet? I am thinking about the airport express cos i was wondering if I can create my own network even if I'm using the school network..
Check with your school, as some forbid wireless networks to be set up.
ok thank u ggj. =]
I have a friend who is wondering if an Airport Express would be a cheaper alternative instead of an Extreme to replace her POS Linksys router in her home. Any thoughts/advice?
If she wants strictly a wireless network, the AirPort Express will work.
Don't need a crossover, they're auto MDIX
