Need help , just fought with Airport Express for 2 hours -- am I okay?
Hey guys. Moved into a new extended stay type hotel...
I have never had Internet so fast I'm so happy !! Now , they said "I shouldn't use a router because it may slow other people down"
So I bought an airport express --
- the hotel has a "access code login page" for security. I used my code on my laptop (didn't think to download airport app on the pad -- even though someone has an unsecured wifi network (blazing fast lol)
-- I got the airport app , everything was fine
-- got to the login page , entered code and it no longer worked .
-- called front desk and got a new one , it worked ... Then I went to settings and under wifi I selected the airport hub like an idiot thinking I can customize stuff (not airport app just the airport thing in settings) ...
---- Start safari , "login" pops up -- code dead.
Now I just got a new code and it's fine ... But I'm not using security but I AM using "hidden network". I'm scared to even attempt to update/change anything in fear of needing a fourth code within 3 hours of move in ...
It's just a little hotel , is being "hidden" enough security ? I did use the airport app And made it hidden / crossed fingers / and reconnected and its fine. So am i good to go ?
Thanks guys -- its been a loooooong time since using very high speed internet , my last place was like dial up!!!!
