The Network Security Key is possibly the same pw as the network you are attaching to. This device can be configured in so many different ways.
If you can't figure it out then use the reset button on the back or use paper clip in reset hole.
To set up and configure your AirPort Extreme to use AirPort for wireless networking and Internet access, use the setup assistant in AirPort Utility.
The manual may be of some help... Available here http://support.apple.com/manuals/#airport
depends on the printer model....
if you have a recent type of printer with Airprint capability it is very easy to setup wireless.
however if you have an old printer with only a USB-cable you'll need another device to get it working:
Apple sells WiFi-devices like Airport-Express, Time-Capsule and Airport-extreme Print command central.
The included USB port is great for sharing a printer throughout your wireless network. Time Capsule and the Bonjour networking technology let everyone in the house or office - Mac and PC users alike - take advantage of one centrally located printer.
The airport routers have built in antennas and external antennas cannot be attached. For wider range, place the router high up and away from glass, metal, and stone. Try changing wireless channels to lessen interference.
Apple uses airport for its wireless connection, how ever the device where you want to connect to should have the wireless feature embeded to it or you should have a wireless router to distribute the wireless signal, if you are using just a modem which doesn't have capability of distributing wireless signals, the Apple airport will surely not work for it requires a modem to connect to. you need to get a router and connect it in your modem so the Apple will work for wireless as well.
Yes, you just need to connect the Airport to the modem. That way, the Airport will fetch the internet connection and distribute it to all your WiFi enabled device. You don't need any other hardware. You just need to configure the airport using your Mac computer.
Here's a quick setup guide from Apple.com:
Setup Airport Extreme
connect the airport extreme to the voyager using a network cable... factory reset the extreme and then connect to it using the airport utility... you should get a setup screen where you can switch the extreme to "bridge mode" .. everything else should happen automatically.. you will then have 2 wireless networks?
1) Open Airport Utility (Applications/Utilities).
2) Select the Airport Extreme in the left hand panel and press Manual Setup
3) Choose Internet in the top menu bar
4) Change Connection Sharing to 'Off' (Bridge Mode.
Press update to restart the Airport and save the settings.
OK, do you have the latest version of Apple's Airport Utility: Version 5.4.1 (541.9) ?
If you don't, get it... it's got an excellent interface that will walk you through bridging two wireless routers together.
Once you get your hands on it, you will need to choose which airport will be the primary and which will be the secondary. Ideally, pick the one connected to the highest speed and most reliable internet access.
Connect to the secondary airport and configure it as bridge to the primary, the Airport Utility will walk you through it step by step.
