    I am in an RV park where they have Wireless Tengointernet service and I would like to set up a wireless network in my RV that will connect to it. I have to go to Tengointernet every week and renew the free subscription. Is there a wireless router that will allow me to do that once on it so I don't have to do it for every wireless device I own?

    The problem you're going to run into is the portal renewal. I know Cradlepoint routers support using WiFi as a WAN connection. I don't know if they support captive portal type setups such as what we're talking about here.

    An alternative is to set up a PC which you use to connect to the Tengointernet service, Then you could connect up a wireless router to a wired port on this PC which would be running Internet Connection Sharing (ICS). The rest of your wireless devices would then connect to the WiFi network from the wireless router.
