Configure Apple Airport Extreme through Windows XP with a LInksys Wired Router
Posted on 2006-05-28
I'm trying to connect an Airport Extreme wireless router to a Linksys wired router. It doesn't seem to be getting the internet connection but I can pick up a "hollow" wireless signal from the Airport.
First, the stupid Linksys router had to have my computers connect through static IP addresses otherwise it wasn't working.
So I got the wired computer working, now I guess the Airport needs to have its addresses static too? I only have Win XP pcs at the moment how can I configure the right address for the Airport Extreme?
DSL Modem has been tested independently and works fine.
Linksys EtherFast Wired Router initially worked hooked up to only one other computer.
Other computers had to have thier IP made static, then they worked.
Airport extreme is not working to provide wireless internet, but it does send out a wireless signal.
