You will need a wireless (WiFi) adapter for the RRC, since it only has an ethernet port. The one I use
is the Netgear WNCE2001:

Thanks Mitch -- Do you know if anyone has tried the 2001 with an iphone ???  Also, do you think the 2001 will hold the sign on information- password etc - once it has been set with a laptop???

Thanks again for your help

I don't know about the iPhone specifically, but assuming it works as a standard wireless router,
there is no logical reason why it shouldn't work. Of course, computer technology often does not
work for no logical reason, but that is a different story.  ;)

The WNC2001 is booked into the network using a PC/browser once, then  maintains these settings
until changed again. Basically, it is "permanent" until told otherwise.
