Dumb Question
Authored by: Anonymous on Apr 21, '09 08:37:19AM

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but exactly how do you use an AirPort Express to access a wired internet connection in an hotel?

Do I need a cable of some sort?

I would think you would plug your Airport Express into the wall outlet, then plug in the RJ-45 ethernet that the hotel supplies. Or some hotels might have wireless that the Express could bridge but that seems unlikely.

I've long used my Express to charge my iPods when I realized the battery was low and I didn't want to wake my Mac up by plugging in a USB device and/or leaving it running overnight while the iPod charged.

Thanks.

I've always stayed in hotels with wireless access, so I didn't know that a cable was supplied.
