I know people buy Airport Expresses to expand their WiFi network at home or to stream music to another room in their house by connecting speakers to the Express. I got an old Express (g speed not n) lying around and wonder how I could put it to use.
Could I plug it in an electrical outlet at a Starbucks and use the Express to create my own secure network off of their unsecured network?
I could take it with me with traveling and create a secure WiFi network in my hotel room allowing all my devices to connect to it via WiFi. It would be great if it had good range so I could have WiFi in the lobby without paying the hotel for their WFi, but I doubt it. It seems hotels charge for their WiFi, but don’t charge for ethernet internet access.
