How can I use a public WI-FI as the WAN connection for a router?
Posted on 2007-03-29
A friend of mine recently asked the following networking-related question. Any ideas?
"My apartment complex refuses to use encryption on their wireless. Now, just to spite the masses, they are shutting off our wall connections and making internet (which is included in rent) wireless only....UNSECURED wireless only. Not being too smart w/ routers, I wanted to know if it would even be possible to set my linksys wrt54g to pick up the wireless signal, and then encrypt it so i can connect to my own personal network (basically, instead of getting the internet hardwired into it from the wall, can i just pick up on the unsecured wireless and use that to fuel my network)?"
