A friend of mine recently had a cable modem installed in his flat. Unfortunately, the modem doesn't allow wireless access which he would like.
I'm thinking it would be possible to get a wireless access point connected to this modem to extend internet access availability. Is this possible?
Also, looking at the sockets on the cable modem, there seem only to be two places where data cables will fit: one ethernet socket, and one USB socket (the USB socket is one of those hexagonal types that looks like a rectangle with two of the top corners cut away). Would I be able to get a USB WAP which would connect to this USB port? I ask, because my friend would like to keep the ethernet port open for a wired connection.
