My home network and WiFi


Currently I have a small home network. Two desktops are connected to the router, which is wire-connected to the Time Warner modem. The desktops share folders, and there is a shared printer. Our laptop also accesses the network wirelessly. Yes, the network has a password.

We are students, and our school is installing free wi-fi in our building. I am only too happy to drop Time Warner. How can I maintain my current file sharing and printer sharing functionality without sharing with the entire WiFi network? Is there some way to allow my current router to access the WiFi and still use it for my home network?

  1. use one of these in AP Client mode to connect to the Wi-Fi network and once the connection is made connect you router to it.

    depending on the wireless network's IP scheme you might have to change the LAN IP of your router
