Question about Apple AirPort Extreme Router

1 Answer

I just bought the airport extreme and now my computer internet goes in and out constanly. I have rewired the house, had the telephone repairmen out twice, and had my DSL people on the line countless times. Could this problem be the router? And if so, what can I do?

Try a different antenna configuration.
I just read an article in last weeks Micro Mart magazine.
It was very surprising how the signal strength and range can alter depending on the type and angle the antenna are set at. If there are 2 antennas, angle them at 90 degrees to each other in a V shape, also try fixing them horizontal rather than vertical.

We just bought an Apple Airport Extreme router. After installing the Airport Utility software, and hooking up the router, we can not configure the base station using the Airport Utility. No matter what...


First time you should connect an Ethernet cable to the AirPort, and set it up with the software it came with. Then take a note of the wireless network's name (SSID) and the password (you might want to chance them to your personal preference though), security youre using (WEP, WPA, or WPA2)

Airport Extreme, Mac Cube and proposed Blue Ray /WIFI


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:

Just got a new router (motorola) and airport will


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!

Cant connect to internet with Airport Extreme 802.11n


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
