The Airport Extreme can function as a modem AND a router.  Plug the broadband connection into the indicated port on the back of the device.  Some cable and other broadband services will require their own modem to manage the service but they will usually have an ethernet port which you use to connect to the Airport and use it just as a wifi and ethernet router.

Install the Airport Utility application from Apple on any Windows PC or Macintosh computer .. open the application and the wizard will detect the Airport Extreme and step you through configuring it.

Let us know what setup you have .. in order to provide more information

Its all depends on your current setup
