You can set up the SSID, wireless channel, WPA key, router password
and network IP address range before sending to Atlanta. The only
setting that must be down in Atlanta is the set up for the Internet
service. If you know that the Internet service would be based on DHCP
(usually for cable TV style Internet service) you can set up this easy
anywhere else.
