hello, and thanks for the quick response.  I think i understand, but i want to 
make sure before i plop down the money to buy something : )

as i understand it, the ap-utils will allow me to configure my access point 
over the USB port the same way you do in windows, or i can connect to it over 
tcp/ip without any usb support if i can connect to its ip address.  is this 
correct?

thanks for the help, and sorry im being such a bother : )
