I have a Belkin 802.11g usb network adapter that I no longer need (specifically: F5D7050B), and I have a secured wireless network at home. Rather than hand out the password when I have guests, I'd like to be able to hand out the network adapter for someone to plug in, and the adapter will be pre-configured with the right information to be able to connect.
Is this possible? (I suspect not, but there's no harm in asking). Some ideas I've had:
- Custom firmware, but the only things I can find are for routers (ie dd-wrt or tomato)
- Exempting the MAC address of the device from needing to encrypt traffic (but that's just not how wireless encryption works - I'd still need a different SSID, which perhaps a nicer router could do
If (and only if) it's not possible, does anyone sell a device that will do this?
