Chapter 28. Useful Utilities > AirPort Setup Assistant

AirPort Setup Assistant

AirPort is Apple’s wireless networking technology. You can plug a “basestation” into your existing telephone connection to the Internet, to your cable or DSL modem, or even your T1 connection. Then that base station will send out radio waves to connect any other Mac to the Internet, any Mac that has an AirPort card installed. In fact, the one base station can send the signal out to fifty different Macs. This means you can have an entire classroom or small school connected to the Internet from one connection. The Macs don’t have to be plugged into any modem. We have an AirPort installed in our office, and we can surf the Internet on the iMac in the painting studio where there is no physical connection and on the Mac in my library upstairs. (You might see ads showing people connecting while they sit by the pool or at an outdoor cafe, but notice you never see the screen in those ads—that’s because you can’t see the screen in broad daylight. I know this.)
