I have a Macbook Air or recent Macbook Pro - how can I connect to the wired access connection?

Whilst the Macbook Air and more recent Macbook Pro laptops have no built in ethernet port, you should  be able to connect to the wired access connection if you purchase an Apple USB Ethernet Adapter which plugs into one of the Macbook Air's USB ports.

This adapter can also be used on a Windows machine (or on a Mac running Windows under Boot Camp) provided that the appropriate drivers are installed:
