Airport Extreme acting funny


My Airport Extreme began to behave badly. I'll GET noisy fan, the orange indicator light starts to Flash and then all stops and light turns green. Repeat this every so often. Anyone out there have any ideas?

Thank you



You are not getting enough coolant or the fan is blocked up.

You can follow the fan speed and temperature in airport utility by going to

This is the fun bit... There is no way to clean the fan except by a tear down of EI. And if you have the warranty or the applecare... then it will break.

So take it back to apple for replacement. So they can clean the fan and sell it again in the renovated store.

If you are out of warranty, it would be possible to buy even a few... If EI is less than 2 years old... not many would be more than... Buy applecare on an ipad or apple tv that it will cover...

  • Help with airport extreme

    My router 'House' is a Belkin AC1200.  I have an airport extreme and an additional airport express.  I want to connect the units two the most convenient airport for the Belkin to use extenders.  The extreme currently directly connected to the Belkin but all up like the old network with the express acting as a bridge.  This seems to work OK sometimes, but the extreme tends to abandon the Belkin remains consistent.  Looking for assistance to resolve this before the purchase of new equipment.

    Thank you

    Your problem may be in a number of places.

    Sorry, but the details are important. We can not pass without descending to real connections and strength wireless etc.

    I guess the main router Belkin is fortunately network control.

    The extreme must be connected by ethernet to it... and the installer in Bridge mode.

    The Express could be either connected directly to wireless mode extend extreme or aid which I assume is what you mean by bridge.

    Now, it is important to know exactly how everything here is the installer... so please do some screenshots you can post... Especially look at the wireless between the extreme and express.

    Click on the extreme wired and give me summary page... and then one like mine... Move your pointer over the connection: still unknown since El Capitan. It will bring up then some details of the connection that is important.

    If your computer is a link to the Belkin don't expect Airport appears with reliability. There are a number of reasons for this, but one is local domain. Please define the Belkin locally if possible... but even this is often not enough to get Apple's DNS works reliably.

  • Airport Extreme Ethernet not recognized

    I recently bought an Airport Extreme (bought summer 2016) and have laid a cable cat5e (100 feet) across my house, so I can connect through ethernet when I want a faster connection. The airport is located behind a modem 2Wire (UVerse) but acts as a router.

    When I got the cable along the floor boards, it worked fine. I raised it through our basement (under floor) and it no longer works. I checked the cable with a LAN Tester and it passed. I also ran it directly from the UVerse for the MacBook and worked well. I would like to run from the airport, however, not the Uverse modem.

    Can anyone suggest why she might have stopped working? (I tested the ports on the airport with other ethernet cables, and they are operational, as is the ethernet on my MacBook port).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, as it's driving me crazy.

    You affected pairs...?

    Even though the MB worked have you actually checked that it worked at full speed?

    See this post for nearly identical problem... and why pairs are so important.

  • If I can do an Airport Extreme mobile network with a modem/router cable xfinity manufactured by Cisco?

    Can I create an Airport Extreme (current generation) network of roaming with a cable modem/router xfinity manufactured by Cisco (DPC3939 to be exact)?  The modem-router Cisco/Xfinity put into bridge mode?

    Can I create an Airport Extreme (current generation) network of roaming with a cable modem/router xfinity manufactured by Cisco (DPC3939 to be exact)?

    Yes, if the Airport Extreme will be connected to the Cisco DPC3939 back using wired Ethernet wired, permanent.

    The modem-router Cisco/Xfinity put into bridge mode?

    No. I you have done this, the Cisco/Xfinity device would only act as a simple modem... so it would not be a wireless service to all.

    A note of caution here... the support document you are referencing... Wi - Fi base stations: install and configure a roaming network (802.11 a/b/g/n)... use the examples that are long outdated does not follow with the versions present on a Mac AirPort Utility or iPhone/iPad.

    There are some good general information in the document.

  • Airport Extreme and Broadband Modem/Router

    I have my Airport Extreme (5th generation) plugged into a Broadband Modem/Router combo. I would like to have both able to use their wireless capabilities. The Airport Extreme has been previously connected to a Modem broadband all my IP addresses came by Airport Extreme (192.168.2. *). With the New Modem/Router combo broadband, it uses 10.0.0 * so I would be able to use Airport Extreme to add the 192.168.2. * While having the 10.0.0. * the Broadband Modem/Router combo.

    Is this possible and, if so, how do I configure Airport Extreme to do?

    Normally, you don't want two devices on the same network as the two try to act as routers to the same network. Which will produce conflicts of IP addresses... which can possibly be addressed... and a Double NAT problem, which cannot.

    The Double NAT error can cause a number of unpredictable issues... things like the problems of communication between the devices on the network, slow navigation... or, not navigation in the case of certain websites, Internet access slower, to name a few.

    Yes, some users may get away with a Double NAT on a single home network, but unnecessarily complicating things over a network is normally something you want to avoid.

    We do not recommend it, but if you really want AirPort Extreme for use range 192.168.2.x however, you can easily make this change using AirPort Utility. If you are not sure how to do this and need help, then we will need to know which version of AirPort utility you are using.

    To find, open AirPort Utility, and then click the menu of AirPort Utility in the far left of the screen corner. Click on about AirPort Utility to see what version you have and post back with that info.

  • Airport Extreme network 4G connection

    I currently have the following configuration for my internet appliances:

    I have an Airport Extreme unit serving wireless three units Airport Express to extend WiFi coverage throughout the House. Physically connected to the Airport Extreme via ethernet are two televisions Panasonic who can access the same places predetermined via the internet (for example, BigPond movies and television, People, ABC iView, SBS OnDemand). To enable connectivity to other sites such as Netflix, Stan etc every Panasonic TV has its own unit of Apple TV connected to Airport Extreme via WiFi.

    I use Airport Extreme for all my other internal needs such as web connectivity MacBook and iPhone.

    The Airport Extreme WAN port is so physically connected to the ADSL modem and line phone Telstra for the Exchange, which is about 4 km.

    The problem is that the speed of download of the ADSL 2 + are poor, maxing out at about 3.5mbps. When I listen to the live broadcast of MotoGP and World Superbike racing the picture often freezes while he puts in buffer. Watched movies via Netflix and Stan often freezes too.

    I just ran a speed test on the Telstra Mobile 4 G network and I got a download speed of 111.94Mbps 41.77Mbps upload speed.

    Now, I'm thinking it would be great if I could connect my home network to the internet via their WiFi 4 G device X Pro Advanced.

    My question is this:

    Is it possible to connect the Airport Extreme to the Telstra WiFi 4 G device and the use of the mobile network for my internet and get rid of the ADSL modem? I don't think I can use USB Extreme airport connection, I think that the port is only to connect a printer, but I do not know if the Airport Extreme talk wireless Telstra 4 G device. Documentation of Telstra said their device will connect up to 10 devices using WiFi, but I do not know if there would be problems with the Airport Extreme router to talk to her.

    After spending heaps on all these units of Apple (1 x Airport Extreme) and 3 x Airport Express I don't want to lose, but if there is no way to Airport Extreme wireless unit of Telstra (or if this method is ridiculous) so maybe I might be able to get the device of Telstra to talk to all my other WiFi devices directly. Then, I might be able to sell the extreme and expresses it.

    I had a discussion with Apple Support through their chat session, but the person with which I spoke was not able to help.

    Thanks in advance.

    You need a device that is able to connect via Ethernet to the AirPort Extreme base station.

    With a plain/direct USB 4 G modem, a router broadband mobile sometimes can act in Bridge mode and thus provide a conversion method. For example, Dovado has these routers, but their modem ( compatibility list appears to cite that a single Telstra USB 4 G modem (ZTE) which supports the mode bridge.

    Your question indicates, however, that the 4G modem is actually a mobile access point (providing a local Wi - Fi network). If so, it may or may not be possible to use the wireless Ethernet Bridge (maybe even a model of Apple AirPort Express appropriate) to join this hotspot wireless and then connect via Ethernet to the entrance of the AirPort Extreme. This is all experimental, however. Various problems, including double NAT, are to be expected.

  • Airport Extreme 7,7,7 drop connection and internet high speed

    My Airport Extreme (6th generation) have had the serious problems of the internet, as said in the title I had problems with my internet connection, I checked if that was the problem of the modem to the beginning (D3.0 Ubee) which was provided by my Internet, Charter provider.

    I've had Airport Extreme for almost a year to 2 years now and since then, I had no problem with my internet until 7.7.7 update came.

    I updated my firmware and this is where my random internet connection problem started.

    My current contract with the Charter are their 60 Mbps (download speed) and 4 Mbps (download speed), during the first days since I've updated 7.7.7 connections was fine and then my internet has started to decline since a means 50-60 Mbps (download speed) to 0.1 - 2 mb/s (download speed), my download speed has remained a constant 3-4 MB/s (download speed). I have tried and used Opendns several times, he really did nothing.

    I tried to turn off both modem and Airport extreme for a couple of minutes and turn on their return, but he does nothing and just refers to an extremely slow speed.

    The only way I found to fix my problem to get my internet to 0.1 - 2 mb/s (download speed) back to its original state, I find myself to be a restore return settings on the Airport Extreme with my Airport utility by default whenever the problem returns (which contributes to a certain degree as it gets my back up to 50 internet-60 MB/s) then he drops down again).

    I wanted to restore to 7.7.6 or the latest version of previous firmware before 7.7.7 (not too sure what version of firmware, it was) but I can't find how to spend my Airport extreme to my Airport utility.

    My question is what could I do to fix this problem if the decommissioning of my extreme (I need instructions with this too), change some settings, get rid of the * thing and get a new router, or am I stuck resetting to the parameter by default whenever she acts upward.

    I use windows 10 for my laptop

    Thank you for your time

    Unfortunately, the first question that you encountered is the AirPort for Windows utility has not been updated since Windows 7. In addition, it is not supported for use with the 802.11ac latest versions of airport base stations. Then downgrade to earlier versions of the firmware for base station can be difficult, unless you can get hold of a Mac or iOS device.

    If you are ready to test Windows 10, here are the steps to do:

    • Open the AirPort for Windows utility.
    • Select the base and then station in the utility menu bar, select the access point > Download Firmware...
    • Click on the Download Version dialog box, where the current version of the firmware is listed.
    • You should now see a list of the firmware versions that are available.
    • Click on the one you want to get off at.
    • Choose either 'continue' to continue with the downgrade, OR click 'Cancel' If you decide not to do so.
    • If you choose to continue, allow the firmware to be downloaded, installed and the base station to turn.
  • Problems with AirPort Extreme and Qwest Modem/Router.

    I have a Qwest ActionTec 1000 DSL VDSL2 gateway and want to disable the functions of router wireless and those through direct AirPort Extreme. I know that in the Modem I have to disable the functions of addressing and turn them in the AirPort Extreme to avoid address conflicts, but what are the settings I need to change in both devices? And what is "A Transparent bridging" on the side of the modem?

    But what are the settings I need to change in both devices?

    Sorry, we can't help on the settings for the modem/router, because it would be a question of Qwest as to if this is even possible and if so, if Qwest will support this type of installation. Sometimes the ISP lock modem/router settings, and although it seems as if you can change the basic configuration of the unit, you can really.

    Yes, it is possible that another user of Qwest has done with the same modem/router you have and an AirPort Extreme... and may know the answer... but the chances of the person who holds this information also to see this post are slightly above zero. But, I guess it's possible.

    If the modem/router can be configured to operate only as a simple modem, then the next step would be to get your Mac connected directly to the modem to test the connection in this way. If Qwest is going to help you, they will do it no doubt with your Mac connected directly to the "modem" as well.

    Once you know the exact details of the PPPoE authentication to establish a connection, these parameters can be transferred to the AirPort Extreme and removed from your Mac. To do this, you reset the AirPort Extreme back to default and then put settings in place again. The installer should detect the PPPoE connection and then ask for your login information.  After this, the correct settings apply to AirPort Extreme during the installation.  You can still use the same wireless network name and password you used before if you wish, or set up a new network name and password.

    PPPoE on the routers of the airport, at least in my experience, was not a reliable way to connect when I tried this in the past, but you don't really know how well... or even if... it will work until try you it. Unless you really want the airport to distribute IP addresses to devices on your network, things would be a lot more simple if you went ahead and used the modem/router "such what" and then let the airport works in Bridge Mode to transfer information in connection with network devices.

    When you have the modem/router converted to act as a simple modem and made a successful connection using your Mac connected directly to the "modem", post back and we can help with the configuration of the AirPort Extreme if you need more advice.

  • Internet connection Cox Cable & Airport Extreme

    I had the last three or four months a problem with Internet cable fall suddenly. All the lights on the modem cable have no problem with the modem. The Airport Extreme base station has a green light, as well. I have to keep resetting the modem cable 3 - 4 times a day. The ISP is Cox Cable.

    It affects all the iPhone, phone Android, iPad and other Apple computer, we have. All lose connectivity at the same time. If I connect to the Mac mini directly to the modem cable by the cable network the internet connection gets dropped without using the WiFi network.

    1 does anyone know conflicts between modems Motorola and Apple Airport Extreme networks?

    2. what else can I check or try to fix it?

    Airport Extreme: How would I test for a problem with the unit master of AE? The only thing I can think to do is reconfigure AE units and using one of the older AE devices as master and see if that makes a difference, but it's a headache to do if there is an easier way.

    Our WiFi network consists of a base station Airport Extreme 802.11ac with two base stations older AE acting as slaves to the base ac station to expand the network throughout the House. All base stations are running the latest firmware from Apple (7.7.3 & 7.6.4 on two more former slaves). The light remained green for disconnects. We have previously disabled IPv6 in Airport utility on the base station to avoid potential conflicts with the Cox' months before the start of this issue of network.

    Cable modem: Motorola MB 7420 - Cox says he could be the modem, so I bought a new modem cable Motorola MB7420 to replace the former Motorola cable modem - always have the same reduced connection problems. The cable modem shows any change in status or lights during connections has dropped, but only reset the cable modem seems to fix the problem. The two modems are not any lights/status change, but there is no internet connection, even if a computer is connected directly to the cable modem once the connection is released. I kept it connected and had it remove the connection to the internet again after resetting the modem (hours between the drops).

    I tried to connect a computer directly to the modem cable with a network cable and had the same problem, so I thought that I had deviated from the Airport Extreme base station as the problem. Now Cox claims that something came out last week, discussing the problems with Apple routers and cable modems or their network. I can't find anything, but they are supposed to send me information later.

    Coaxial connection: Cox is not finding any disconnection or time in their voting for our modem registers. We had three times to check the lines as he first seemed extremely windy Cox and had a problem before with problems connecting to the pole. Who was waived. They tested the connection between the pole and the cable modem, and we get a signal strong; some problems on the survey for our modem logs (every two hours). There is no water in the connections between the pole and the House. We have checked all the connections of the coaxial cable between the outer box and the cable modem. Cox is to revisit all connections around our House to see if they can find no evidence of a problem upstream or downstream from our part.

    Network cables: I replaced network between the cable modem and AE cables as well as AE to a computer next to him - no change.

    1 does anyone know conflicts between modems Motorola and Apple Airport Extreme networks?

    There are at least two known issues with Cox here on Apple's Support communities:

    1. Cox started the IPv6 role. The current workaround is to configure your AirPort base stations to use IPv6: link-local only.
    2. The series of Arris/Motorola SB61XX modem is incompatible with 802.11ac AirPort base stations (potentially, 802.11n models as well.) This is not bad in themselves, they just don't "play well" together. I have not heard of all reports on the series of MB74XX... so maybe it's not the question on this point.

    To test the incompatibility, check the ARP cache. It must contain only around a dozen entries. Considerably more could possibly indicate a problem.

    To change the IPv6 configures your airport most convenient base stations you use AirPort Utility, as follows:

    From a Mac:

    • Run the AirPort Utility.
    • Select the base and then station, select change.
    • Select the Internet tab and then, select Internet Options...
    • Change the IPv6 configuration to: link-local only
    • Click on save and then click Update.
    • Allow the base station restart.
    • Do this for each of your base stations.

    Starting from an iOS device:

    • Tap the AirPort Utility to run it.
    • Select the base station.
    • Press Edit.
    • Tap advanced.
    • Tap on IPv6.
    • Change the IPv6 configuration to: link-local only

  • Airport Extreme network orientation parameters

    Here is our network (diagram below) configuration:

    Internet is available through a pass by modem cable to the Sonic Wall set with a static IP address. The wall of sound, we have a port to a point of cradle that is not with a static IP and gives on a totally different range of the IPS via DHCP to our POS. Another port of the Sonic Wall, I had going to the WAN port on our new airport extreme. I have a switch with some control machines connected to the Airport extreme via an ethernet cable. All devices connected via wifi or hard cable with Airport extreme are placed for IPS via DHCP.

    I am trying to configure parameters on a new device extreme airport our Wi - Fi to my company. We recently had some problems of internet connectivity for a minute or two at a time and I wonder if it could be some sort of conflict of IP address or if it was just a failure of the internet that did not affect the status of the modem lights cable (all were green = connected). Brief history: the most extreme airport on a port of our Sonic wall with the airport extreme is default DHCP and NAT (he gave me the orange light, and he suggested that I put it in Bridge mode). Internet in all of our network seemed to work very well, so I just left it alone.

    30 days later we have a brief interruption in internet connectivity with our credit card processing POS two days in a row for a minute or two of. After the second case, we shut down the extreme airport just in case that was causing our problem. I had a technician COMPUTER down and he suggested I put the airport with a static IP (x.x.7.80) outside the range of IP addresses of our wall router Sonic DHCP-range (let's say it was x.x.7.100 - x.x.7.252) he has been giving and then configured the network settings for DHCP LAN only Airport (I used x.x.7.10 - x.x.7.70) with a range that doesn't overlap the IP of the Sonic Wall range. Part of the confusion, I had during the configuration of the airport was if I needed to plug in our Sonic Wall static IP address in the 'router' address and if I needed to use the DNS servers that appeared in the Sonic Wall settings (I thought he was shooting at those of the cable company). After you make these changes, I got a green light on the airport and the connection was working fine when tested. The next day, we had another interruption of connectivity where our treatment card and internet from WIFI got interrupted. I unplugged the power of WIFI and it seemed that our POS network has begun to process cards normally again.

    The point side cradle of the network is to grasp what IP the sonic wall gives him and give the address on a completely different system that is used in the other part of the network. Another question would be if I can just put the Airport extreme to DHCP mode under the 'Internet' parameter and go to the bridge on "Network" setting Mode I don't know how the bridge Mode would affect our network. I'm not wanting to do anything on the side POS (point of cradle) which is rather difficult with someone like me who is not an expert. Any thoughts are appreciated to help me resolve this issue.

    Brief history: the most extreme airport on a port of our Sonic wall with the airport extreme is default DHCP and NAT (he gave me the orange light, and he suggested that I put it in Bridge mode). Internet in all of our network seemed to work very well, so I just left it alone.

    There are two schools of thought on this.  The traditional method (better, in my opinion) would have the AirPort Extreme, put in place in Bridge Mode... Since you already have another router... (the Sonic Wall device which is upstream of your network)... providing routing services.

    Although you might be able to make a network work well with two different devices acting both as of the routers on the network, it complicates things, adds another firewall to the network, and also produces a base called Double NAT network error.

    Sometimes you can get away with a Double NAT error on a simple network, but the double layers of NAT may cause some unpredictable problems. The usual problem is slower navigation, or you will not be able to access some Web sites.  Network devices may not communicate reliably, or communicate at all in some cases.

    This is why Apple software configuration you advise to set up AirPort Extreme in bridge... Mode to fix the Double NAT error. This type of configuration simplifies your network... Since one device will put a router... not two.

    In recent years in particular, we have seen some tips on forums that goes against the rules of traditional networking.  These people that it is OK to have two devices both try to act as routers to the same network... and to 'ignore' the Double NAT error on the network.

    It's interesting tips, since the Apple software advises you avoid having a Double NAT on the network... and some advanced features like Back to My Mac specifically Apple advise to avoid a Double NAT error on the network.  If you have a console online game and you want to play interactively on Internet, you already know that a Double NAT error will not allow this.

    My suggestion would be so... If you have not already tried it... to set up the AirPort Extreme in Bridge Mode.  Apple calls this setting off (Bridge Mode)... which simply means that routing services are turned 'Off' Mode bridge.

    You can still assign a static to AirPort Extreme IP address, if you want, but the devices that are connected to the AirPort Extreme will receive the Sonic Wall router network IP addresses... Since the airport acts as a simple device to "go" when he returns and in Bridge Mode.

  • Airport Extreme connected to TIVO: why I can not change Type firewall for IPv4.  Field displays IPv6 and is grayed out so I can't change.

    TIVO requires certain ports to be unblocked.  So I try to add the ports requiring TIVO.  But when you try to add the default Type of firewall IPv6 Port Mapping ports and I can't change the value of the IPv4 Port Mapping because the input field is grayed out and no is not accessible.  With Port IPv6 mapping I enter values in all areas except for the IPv6 address because I do not know what value to enter.  I think the button 'save' ' is not available to hit because the IPv6 address field is empty or not valid.  Note: my router Mode is ' Off (Bridge Mode).  Same questions if my router DHCP Mode.

    I changed my router Mode DHCP and NAT, then on the Type of firewall on the default page add ports, IPv4 Port Mapping and I could add ports but with this setting, I couldn't connect to internet in my Airport Extreme: my status remains orange light flashing.

    I use Comcast and my Airport Extreme is connected to my Comcast router using ethernet.

    I use my Airport Extreme as a router (wired and WIRELESS) and as a backup device.

    My TIVO is connected to my Airport Extreme using ethernet.

    How can I add the Ports requiring TIVO.

    Golden in the networking rule. ....... Never try to configure port mapping when you have two devices on the same network the two acting as a router.

    Unfortunately, this is exactly what you're trying to do.

    You have three options:

    (1) run the Comcast router "as what" and configure the port on the device of Comcast mapping... .the airPort Extreme must be configured in Bridge Mode when you do this.

    (2) lance to the AirPort Extreme router Mode of DHCP and NAT and configure the ports on the airport map... the peripheral Comcast must be configured to operate as a simple modem in Bridge Mode when you do this. 

    (3) lance to the AirPort Extreme router Mode of DHCP and NAT and configure the ports on the airport map... swap Comcast modem/router you have now for a simple modem (it will have only a single Ethernet port).

    In other words, either the Comcast is defined as the router and AirPort Extreme is in Bridge Mode... or... the AiPort Extreme is configured as a router and Comcast must be configured in Bridge Mode.

    If you choose Option 1, then we can not help you on a matter of Comcast router. In bridged Mode, the AirPort Extreme requires no configuration.

    If you choose Option 2 or Option 3, then we the following port values that the Tivo device needs:

    Public or UDP ports

    Public TCP

    UDP private

    Private TCP

    In addition, you need to find the MAC address for the TIVO.  It is a long code that looks something like this, for example:

    A1: B2: C3: D4: E5: F6

    A link to the Tivo instructions for port mapping would also be very useful.  I have done this with a TIVO in the past, but is for some years.

    If all goes well, an expert of TIVO will post to lend a hand.

  • problem w / Airport Extreme base station and modem Netgear broadband

    I just changed to ATT Uverse to Time Warner - internet only.  With Uverse, I was using my Airport Extreme base station to create a wireless network, and it has worked well in this capacity.  When you switch to TWC, the tech got the modem (TWC allows you to buy your own modem, so I bought a Netgear CM600 a recommended model) enabled and works very well, but could not get the Airport base station to talk about her (yellow light blink on the base station).  So, he opted for a TWC wireless modem/router.  Interestingly, I found that I could plug the Airport base station in the TWC modem (without any reconfiguration, just plugged into the WAN port base station to the modem ethernet port, as I had had with Uverse equipment) and voila!  It worked immediately.

    So, I called TWC to retry my Netgear modem.  I have the base station power off, plugged on the ethenet port Netgear, put back under tension and just got the blinking light.  I know that the modem does not work, because my iMac's network to the internet through the base station, for the Netgear, and go outside and I can fine surf in this way.  So it is something in the wireless configuration that must be different between the TWC modem and the Netgear modem.

    Obviously, I'm not an expert at this, basic troubleshooting tips would be appreciated.  The base station functions as a router (I can connect through a port ethernet through it), it is simply not generate a WiFi network for me...

    Thanks for the tips

    So, he opted for a TWC wireless modem/router.  Interestingly, I found that I could plug the Airport base station in the TWC modem (without any reconfiguration, just plugged into the WAN port base station to the modem ethernet port, as I had had with Uverse equipment) and voila!  It worked immediately.

    If your AirPort Extreme has been in its original configuration, it would act as a wireless Internet router. If you connect another router upstream to the extreme, there is work, but you'll have a condition known as: Double NAT. This isn't necessarily bad, but should be avoided if possible. To do this is simply to reconfigure the downstream router (in this case, the extreme) under a bridge. This disable its functions of routing and remove the error condition.

    However, if your extreme base station has been reconfigured as a bridge, if connect you directly to a simple modem, like the Netgear CM600, then this configuration will not work because no device will provide the necessary routing functions.

    It's always a good idea to perform a full power recycle your network hardware during change of equipment. Maybe that's the only thing your missed when you design your own? If you haven't done so already, please give it a try with the CM600 & Extreme combo. After return your results.

  • AirPort Extreme and Virgin super hub


    I have a new hub great vm that I put in place in modem only mode and then using my AirPort Extreme of 2nd generation as the wireless router. Is there a reason why I would see lower broadband speeds like that implemented just vs using the super hub in router mode full. I get very fast BB with just the hub acting as the wireless router but it drops by half or even more with my extreme up to game. The problem is that the hub has the power of the terrible wireless signal? I was wondering if it's because of my extreme 2nd generation? Or perhaps a setting that is incorrect.

    appreciate any advice.

    Thank you


    A 2nd generation AirPort Extreme is at less than 7 years and that almost 9 depending on where you purchased the product. On average, the useful lifetime of a router designed for domestic use is... average... about 5 years.

    You can reset the AirPort Extreme back to default settings and then set ip all over again, but frankly, I doubt that this will result in a significant improvement. Let us know your results if you decide to try it.

    If you decide to try a new router, AirPort, Apple offers a 14-day return privilege, so if one new product is not the way you want, you can return it for Exchange or refund.

  • Can I use an AirPort Extreme to add wifi to wired devices?

    Essentially, I would use an AirPort Extreme as a wifi adapter WITHOUT using it as wireless access point. I really just want to access my wireless internet and distribute the connection via Ethernet.

    For more context, I have a time capsule airport connected to my modem fiber. Time capsule does a great job of the town house with wifi coverage. However, I have a couple of components in my home theater, who are not able WiFi (DVD player, older game system, etc.). I got to have an AirPort Extreme, so my hope is to use an Internet for these components. I would have preferred that she not also "extend" the wireless network and contract my all along (I know this isn't the end of the world, I just useless expansion of the range so there is no reason for me to enter the equation or more wifi signals bouncing around the House).

    I searched a bit and encoder table extend network via wifi or the creation of a network of travelling, but I have not found a way to have the extreme put in place to receive the rebroadcasting wifi without her signal. It's something I can do?  In the circumstances, any other suggestions for setting this up that doesn't involve running one cable Ethernet or the purchase of additional equipment?

    Thanks in advance!

    This would work... IF... the AirPort Extreme has been implemented to extend wireless network provided another router from Apple. Which would mean that the AirPort Extreme also would act as a point of access Wi - Fi.

    It does NOT at all if you try to connect to a third-party router wireless AirPort Extreme wirelessly.

    Ironically, an AirPort Express can be configured to do exactly what you want using either a router from Apple or a third-party router as the "primary" router If two ports Ethernet on the Express are too few in number, you can add an Ethernet switch to create more connections.

  • WAG160N and an Apple Airport extreme

    I recently bought an Apple Airport extreme, and in order to use the guest account, I need to disable DHCP and NAT on my WAG160N settings and allow extreme settings. Otherwise the extreme is in bridge mode and therefore doesn't let me create a guest account.

    Could someone tell me please what settings I need to change in the WAG160N so that it acts as a modem only and not a router.

    Thank you

    You can't disable NAT on the WAG unless you go to fashion of the bridges, which means that it becomes a simple modem. You cannot use the wireless on the WAG, nor anything else. In bridged mode, you configure Airport Extreme as main router connecting to PPPoE (or whether you need from your ISP).

    Switch mode bridge on the main configuration page.
