Re: Using Wireless Internet without a PC?

said by slajoh01:

But if Management through WLAN is disabled by default in most routers, then no one can accomplish this task unless they take the router to a family or friend's house and configure the router there.

As iansltx said, it's typically not disabled by default. In fact, out of dozens of different brands of routers I've used, I've never come across one that had it disabled out of the box. You just got that "one in a million" chance of not having a router you could configure without plugging in to it.

This type of router is more on a higher-end scale as far as security goes. This is more for a small business type office which needs more secure routers to protect the router itself from attacks as well the PCs connected to it....

And the businesses will typically have hardwired PC's so it wouldn't normally be a problem for a place like that. I'm sure if you had used a normal consume grade router you would have been fine configuring it over the wireless connection.
