I have an airport extreme that I want to connect to my quest wirless router when i do connect the airport nothing happens i cannot get on the internet using the airport what am i doing wrong never had this problem when using verizon
As far as I am aware all you need is a router that has DHCP (automatic IP addressing) and your Airport Extreme should pick up an IP address and then you Apple Mac should detect the Airport Extreme and let you connect to it and set it up.
I assume you have installed the latest Airport Extreme software?
Just like you, I also have this kind of experience, in which I got this hard to solve. But with the help of this thread, all of my worries were all gone because this gives me an idea on how to solve this.
