So we were wondering if there is a way of creating a new broadband network using an old wireless router (Actiontec 54Mbps Wireless DSL Gateway GT701WG) we have that is spare and mums new iPad?
Mum doesn't have a PC so we cannot set one up that way. Is there anyway that the router could be set up using the iPad itself?
Presumably you have to have something hard wired to the router to make the settings?
So in a nut shell, can I configure/troubleshoot the modem/router using just the iPad? I know some configurations are accessed through just a web browser, and I wasn't sure if the iPad Safari would support that.
And what if somebody was setting up a modem from scratch?
Would they be able to do everything from the iPad?
One option we have thought might work would be to set it up using a laptop but will the router still work once we unplug it?
Any assistance appreciated.
