We just subscribed to Mediacom's internet for our rental house. We added a wireless router. Renters can either just turn on their wireless enabled laptop and be on our network, or connect via a wire that is connected to the router if they have an ethernet card for a hardwire connection. No Mediacom sofware is required. Just open up IE or your favorite browser and you're on the internet. I don't know if it's worth it yet, but anything to make SoWal visitors able to get on sowal.com!
