Connecting yesterday's Macs to the internet ties you to one network connection and one location. So much for portability. To access the internet with more than one computer, you had two choices. You could order another telephone line for the second computer-and a second account if you didn't want to wait your turn to go online. Or you could wire the computers together in a network-drilling holes in walls, running messy cables through rooms, and negotiating complex networking software.
Not anymore! Based on an 11-megabit-per-second wireless local area network technology instead of traditional cabling, Airport is an easy-to-use system that lets your vintage Macs go wireless in minutes
