All looks connected but no internet

I've connected the Airport to the internet via DHCP served by the broadband modem. I've connected my two Macs, one wirelessly and one hard wire to the Airport. Airport is serving DHCP to the Macs. All lights are green but not getting web site response. 255.255.254.0 subnet mask.

If I disconnect the Airport and go directly to the modem with hard wire the internet still won't connect until I reboot the modem and Mac at the same time. Then, I get a new IP address and the internet access.

You are getting subnet masks of 255.255.254.0 from the Airport? Something doesn't sound right about that. Off the top of my head, it sounds like the Cable Modem is plugged into the LAN port (Rather than the WAN port) on the Airport.

I would like to know a little more information:

What IP address/subnet mask is the mac getting when connected to the modem directly (After reboot and working)

What are the IP addresses of both macs, when connected as you specified above? Also, using the Airport Admin Utility, what are the IP address(es) being assigned to the Airport itself?

Kings to you matheweis. The cables WERE reversed. I pulled that one off some time in the frantic process of resetting the Airport. How do I award you your points? This is my first question.
