Currently Being ModeratedSep 9, 2009 4:07 AM (in response to UA1989)This should work fine. If the cable modem acts as a router, the AE just needs to be configured to get a IP address via DHCP, and to distribute DHCP addresses to wireless clients (your computer). It won't be working as a bridge, but setting up its own wireless network.
If the cable modem doesn't act as a router, the AE can.

All you need to do is connect the Ethernet cable to the AX. It's default setting is to act as a wireless router.iMac Alu C2D 2.4 GHz 24" 4GB and 20" 2GB, Mac OS X (10.5.8), iBook G4 14" 1.42 [1.5GB],iBook 466 SE Graphite [576M-40GB],iMac G4 700/768MB
