1. A computing device comprising:
at least one wireless interface adapted to wirelessly connect the computing device to an IP based network via a first wireless
access point (AP) having a first AP Identification (APID);

a user interface adapted to allow a user of the computing device to interact with destinations over the IP based network,
through the first wireless AP, using a first public IP address associated with the computing device; and

wherein the computing device is adapted to operate as a second wireless AP and to:
wirelessly communicate with other wireless enabled computing devices to provide a given device of the other wireless enabled
computing devices with access to the IP based network by serving the given device as the second AP having a second APID, distinct
from the first APID, and providing the given device access to the network via the first AP; and

forward data traffic from the given device, through the computing device, through the first AP, through the IP network, to
a proxy server, such that the proxy server acts as a proxy of the given device and the given device operates on the network
using a second public IP address distinct from the first public IP address, with the second public IP address associated with
the given device.
