How do i get green light in apple modem


Hi,
Since we have no idea what modem you have, it's hard to say, but generally, a hard reset on a cable modem does NOT require it be re-provisioned, Comcast will simply repush the bootfile to it the next time it connects.
I'm not sure what you mean about the Airport Utility not detecting the Airport Extreme but it is showing up in the utility. If it's listed, it must have been detected...
The light flashing amber in the front means several different things depending on exact pattern, see the Apple site for exact details. Most common, no Internet connection because the AEX can't get a DHCP lease on its WAN connection. Have you properly reset your cable modem? You don't say what it is, so it's hard to be precise here. If a regular cable modem simply remove the power cable for a few seconds and let it reboot. If an EMTA with phone jacks press and hold the Reset button until the modem reboots.
The other common cause is the AEX has detected it needs a firmware upgrade. In this situtation, the router will work, but you should update the firmware using the Airport Utility.

Check your connections:

DSL-modem to telephone-jack (or cable-modem to cable-jack).

Ethernet cable from DSL-modem (or from cable-modem) to WAN port on your router.

Ethernet cable from LAN port on router to WAN port on your Airport.

Cut the power to the Airport, and then plug it back in, so that it restarts.

I have a macbook and a pc with a cable modem and an airport extreme. I want to hook them both up so I can use the internet at the same time on the pc and the macbook. How do I do this or hook it up?


Not sure what you have tried yet, so I'll suggest the first thing to try ...
The cable modem will have an ethernet jack on it for "LAN" - you will need an ethernet cable ... plug the cable into this jack .. and the other end of the cable into the airport extreme .. and then power up the airport extreme .. if the airport extreme is new, it will set itself up automatically .. if not new, it might still set itself up automatically - look for a green light on the extreme ... if you have a green light you should be in good shape
Of course your computers have to be in range, say within about 100 feet of the extreme to pick up its wireless signal.
In the MacBook, make sure Airport is turned on - in System Preferences under Network.
Your MacBook should figure things out all by itself and you should be able to connect to the Internet.
On the PC, you'll need a wireless card if you don't already have one ...

You should be able to use the internet simultaneously and each computer should be able to share files if you want to try that (file sharing is turned off by default on the Mac, not sure about the PC)

Good luck!

You will need to check the settings of the router. You are able to go online when you connect the computer directly to the modem. Your internet service provider is DSL. You can try to reconfigure the router. Press the reset button on the router for 30 seconds. release it. unplug the power to the router. plug it back in. wait for 1 minute and try to reconfigure the router.
