Hi,

I've been searching around for a long time for an answer for this question but I cannot find a full relevant answer so please do bear with me.

I am university student and I get my internet via an ethernet cable from a socket in the wall.
I want to install a wireless router to get wireless for all my devices.

Can I plug the ethernet cable directly into any router and get an internet connection like that ?
Do I need a specific router? If so can you please point me in the right direction?

Also, will an Wireless Access Point do the job?

If you need anymore information, please do ask.

Thanks in advance,

Regards

I would suspect your campus IT uses a strict "One MAC address per hardwire connection/student)".

What is your school's policy on this?

I have read through the tenancy agreement and I cannot find anything that relates directly to the use of internet or anything to do with routers etc.

I would borrow a standard wireless router and plug it in. If it give you the option in the router, I would clone the MAC address from your PC. All things being equal, you should be good to go.
