It's not that, it's that you have to have your router in control of not only your LAN but your internet connection as well.

There is (was) no other option. I use a router, but just as a pass-through device connecting my wired and wireless LAN devices. My Linux box actually controls the LAN and is the internet gateway for the network. If all you have is DHCP then the device will connect to the router and assume it is also the gateway. Far, far too simple for advanced users.

In which case disabling DHCP on the router and installing a DHCP server on the Linux box is usually the better option. This is how I run my setup.

How can you find out your wifi password for your computer? My friend is trying to find out because she got an ipod touch and wants to use her wifi for her comp.

the encryption key is stored on your router - if its not been changed it will be on a sticker somewhere on it.

Employees are like mules. Some you stand in front of and coax them along with a carrot. Some you stand behind and kick them in the arse. The key to management is knowing which mules are which!
