I am getting ready to go off to college, and I found out
that my room does not have wireless in it. I have just
bought a wireless printer and that posed a problem. I
decided to get a linksys wireless N router. After
getting the router I found a school code saying
Unauthorized APs (APs not installed, maintained, and
managed by the Division of IT) are prohibited by MU's
business policy 5:085. This policy was implemented
in order to facilitate a common campuswide standard
for wireless networking that will be available to all
legitimate users. When an unauthorized AP is
identified the owner will be asked to remove it from
the network. I did not know if a wireless router was ok
or if it was the same as a wireless access point?

It is, for all intents and purpses they are the same thing. I wireless router is just an ordianary router with a Wirelss Access Point built in instead of having it as a seperate plug-in item.

You wil probably get away with just a wired router but check with the IT department first. In comething like a collage campus there has to be some control over wireless access points other wise in such a confined space there could be so many thay will start interfering with each other.
