First of all, I LOVE Apple stuff.
I need to talk to you about THE device I always take with me when I travel: the Airport Xpress.
It’s a device that you plug on the power outlet and link to an ethernet cable, a printer, an hi-fi.
But all that is standard use, you are not here for standard but to push the boundaries a little bit further.
I use my Airport Xpress when I travel and stay in hotels.
When you hook up to the hotel wifi, you are on your own: one device, one daily subcription ! I have one iPad, one iPhone and one MacBook Pro to connect … And I don’t want to pay for 3 daily wifi subscriptions ! TOO EXPENSIVE !!
So what I do is the following:
I connect my Airport Xpress to the ethernet cable you found in every hotel room.
Then I switch on my iPad/iPhone or computer, on my internet browser. The hotel subscription page opens, I sign in (and pay once) and the wifi is opened for all my wifi devices !!! With one subscription and an Airport Xpress, you surf wirelessly with all your devices (up to 10).
It works everywhere, with Mac and PC. You can also protect your network with a password.
It costs 99$, a daily subscription at the hotel 17$ … Do the math …
PS: You’ll need to configure once the Airport Xpress on a computer to have it working properly. Hower from an iPad … worth investigating!
