    I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this question, but I just wanted to be 100% sure.

    The computers on my wireless network are all programmed with the network SSID and password, obviously. Now I want to add a computer to the network with a wired connection.

    The wired computer doesn't need to know the SSID or password, right? I mean, of course right, since the SSID/password combination is only used to authenticate wireless devices.

    Right?

    Thanks. Sometimes you just need to hear it from someone else. :)
