Have a student that is at thier appartment and has wireless to thier laptop. however there is only 1 ip given out per app #. She was instructed to get a router to make it so that the other 2 roomates can get on the network also. she went out and bought a linksys (model # is not known by me right now) however when she called support back to get it set up they than said that she should also buy a bridge??? .
How do I set her up so that a router will recieve the wireless signal and than broacast a secure network for everyone in her appartment?
