I have internet access via my apartment building's wifi service. After connecting to the wireless signal, I need to enter a access code via my web browser to enable internet access. The access code is specific to each user and changes monthly.
I'd like to be able to share the internet service across several devices (laptop, smartphone, TV and BD Player). If I connect my smartphone to the apartment wireless, then when I enter the access code, the laptop gets disconnected (from internet access, not wireless service). Basically, I can only use one device at a time on the apartment service.
I think I have only a couple of options here. Connect to the wireless service and enter the access code through the laptop, then share the internet service via the laptop. Then connect my smartphone to the wireless service on my laptop.
That can probably cover those 2 devices, but the TV and BD player require network cable connections, so I'd need some type of switch/router device to connect them to that would connect to the laptop's active internet connection.
It would be nice and simple, if a wireless router (with some LAN ports) was able to share the apartment's wireless internet service and I just connect my devices to that. It would require the ability for me to configure it with the monthly access code for the internet access to be enabled.
I've looked but haven't found any consumer style wireless router to do the above.
Anyone have any info on devices that might do this, or how to configure a wireless/switch/router devices along with the laptop to enable my sharing?
