Question about Apple AirPort Base Station
I plugged the airport extreme directly into the ethernet connection in the wall and it will not work--get flashing amber light. If I plug it into the linksys modem, it works. I can plug my computer directly into the wall jack and recieve an internet connecion, without the linksys or airport.
Does the Airport Extreme had to have another modem? How can I find out if this is compatible with my ISP--I have had no luck with them (Smartresort, Baldwin County, AL)
An airport extreme is just a dunb Wireless Access Point. It could be that it has been mated to the Linksys router and is looking at a different set if IP addresses that are not coming from the etherent connection out of the wall.
If you know how to obtain network addresses on your computer, find out what you get from the wall jack and from the airport through the Linksys. You can try to reset and reconfigure the Airport, but if you are not familiar with the hardware, get someone who is to help you. The manual offers several tips and procedures to do this http://manuals.info.apple.com/en/AirPortExtremeBaseStationSetupGuide.pdf
