    Can anyone tell me if the following is possible.

    My office only allows me one wireless device (MacBook Air) - if I get a USB WiFi adapter can I use the Air as a WiFi bridge from Airport to a USB WiFi dongle for other devices?

    If so, any suggestions for a good WiFi adapter would be appreciated.

    Are you trying to share an internet connection?

    Cheers

    I guess so.

    Office WLAN ----> MacBook created WLAN ---> Other devices

    So I'm hoping that I can use the Airport to connect to the office then share via a USB WiFi dongle

    If it's only for internet access you can use bluetooth too. I do that on occasion with my mb air, such as at hotel that not only makes you pay for Internet but limits it to one device (grrrrrr!)
