If you have two Rj45's in your PC you can. Cable is connected to your cable modem. Than another cable called a Rj45 (Looks link a over sized telephone jack), connects from the modem to your PC. The simplest & cheepest way would be to buy a splitter for the Rj45 cable. (A lot less money than buying a second network card. Take a look at the link.(Click it once).

You will also need another Rj45 cable to go to your macbook.

And lastly, if you want to be able to sit any where in your home & still maintain an internet connection you can buy a wireless router. If your mac has a built in wireless network card.
This is pretty cheep compaired to other wireless routers around.

Check your network cables.
Also check your adapters by going to Start > Control Panel > Network Connection and make sure they are all enabled.
If you are using wifi, right-click the adapter in above location and click View available wireless networks and connect to your network.

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!

New Apple Airport Express Base station blinking amber light


Using the Airport utility on your macbook (located in your Utilities folder) will tell you what the conflict is.....most likely you have DHCP issue or the network is at the incorrect setting.
The wizard in the utility will tell you what you should fix.
