I recently moved into an student resident.
the thing about internet here is, they don't use WIFI, but Ethernet instead.
yea, still using cable
after connecting the cable, instead of my homepage,
i will be directed to an URL like :
http://172.17.160.2:8000/index.php?r....google.com%2F

in order to get internet access, you have to login with a name/pass they assign you.

Since my ipad, phone, they need wifi.
so i'm wondering, can i use Airport Express, and spread a wifi hotspot, by connecting Ethernet.
did anyone tried it?
thanks!

ps: im sorry if i asked some silly questions. i'm a pure newbie

I don't see why it wouldn't. I use the AE in hotels that operate similarly with no issues.
