My internet is extremely slow when my Cisco 2100 Cable Modem and the Airport Extreme are used together. When I by-pass the Airport Extreme, my speed improves 10-20 faster. Does anyone know how to program the Airport Extreme to open up the firewalls. My internet provider is Time Warner.

    Here in the Netherlands I have the same problem with an Ubee EVW 3200 cablemodem/wifi-router. The Wifi router function from the Ubee is disabled and I use the wifi router function from the Extreme (4thGen) in combination with an EnGenius ECB9500 accespoint. When I create an internal WLan network not connected to the Ubee, DHCP release is fine, signalstength is perfect, even two armoured concrete floors up I have 3 stripes! Every client connects (iPhone 3GS, 4S, iPad 1st gen, MacBook Pro, HP Probook and Compaq 6910p). When I reset the Ubee modem, fully launch and then connect the Extreme to the Ubee my strength falls back with 50% and there's no internet connection with the wireless clients although the wired iMac through the Extreme has perfect 200mbps connection.

    Every client has an IP, can connect to the SSID, but no internet....My provider here is Ziggo and even their Plus Support has no answer to solve tis problem. They have logged into my system and made sure everything was set correct (it was...!)
