very cool and very quick with the response.
I forgot about the Express. if there's nothing cheaper, then it's probably the best solution. any companions with an iPhone could also access the internet through the same network.
there would be a few stipulations for using it in a hotel though, right? the Express would have to be configured at home before travelling while connected to my Mac. we would also have to assume that the hotel's ethernet network is set up as DHCP. I wonder if this is a realistic assumption. probably?

If I could just plug it in, I could check so many functions of a network without having to lug my notebook into the job.
This would be even cooler with the new iPad - some really significant tools could be put into play.Several MacPros, MBPs, iPhones, @TVs, Mac OS X (10.6)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 29, 2010 1:20 PM (in response to Ed Purkiss)I am with you and that is how I found the topic. I am looking for a plug in RJ45 Ethernet adapter for a Touch to turn it into a network scanner.
pad would be nice, but the touch is so much smaller. I don't have an iPhone - ATT coverage is just plain awful around here.
