How does one connect this device to a password protected wireless network? Doesn't look like it has a UI of any sort.
I would assume it is done via an initial USB connection to a PC or Mac to configure it for wifi? Or does it act as its own wifi access point? If so, that would mean you couldn't connect to a real wifi access point for internet while using?
I am confused...

You already knew the answer, I bet it just like a wireless printer.

Aside from a one-time wired setup, the device likely supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup or 'WPS', for one-button connection. Alternatively, I'm certain it could host its own access point.
