Once your computer is configured, you can establish an AirPort Base Station or gain access to an existing AirPort network. The wireless connection that gets established needs to pass through an AirPort Base Station that is already online. The AirPort Utility will not create a direct internet connection with your existing ISP (Internet Service Provider). It will simply transfer the connection to all the nearby rooms in your house or classroom.
It is very simple to create a wireless network with password protection by using either an AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule. This network will give internet access to all kinds of wireless devices in the nearby rooms, including smartphones, laptops, tablets, and regular desktop computers.
Do not worry about having to set up AirPort Express or AirPort Base Station because the AirPort Utility software for macOS will handle all of this automatically. It will even perform the configuration of your network too. This means the base station just needs to be plugged in. After that, all the stations that are available will be listed in the main interface.
If you are familiar with routers, these AirPort Base Stations work kind of like them. You just connect the cables and then let the network be configured automatically by the application. As for Time Capsule, this refers to the combination of a gateway router and a wireless device. This makes its configuration very easy too.
Overall, the most dependable application for giving wireless internet access to other devices is Apple AirPort Utility for Mac. Every device in your home can establish a connection to your wireless internet network. An external cable doesn’t even need to be used.
