As of recent builds, an XO will become a Mesh Portal Point (MPP)
automatically if connected to the Internet, either via a USB ethernet
interface or by associating with a conventional access point, without
requiring manual software installation or configuration. This has
little or nothing to do with whether the machine is still mobile or not.
And yes, we're worrying about what we call "active antennae", which may
have other uses :-).
