Hi - what kind of modem do you have and does it work with a computer connected directly to it?

I don't have a modem. I connect via ethernet which is wired into all the rooms where I live. I don't have a problem connecting to the internet. I have a problem getting both the Air and the iPad online without one being kicked off.

OK - thanks for the info - I am assuming that there is a modem and router or a modem/router somewhere that is distributing the internet where you live - so your Extreme should be setup in bridge mode via ethernet to create a wireless network with a name and password of your choice - is this correct? - what color is the light on the Extreme and is it blinking?

I didn't set it up in bridge mode, I just went through the setup assistant when I plugged it in--I'm not sure about it. The light was blinking amber, but I just told it to ignore the status problems since I was connected to the internet. The light is now green.
My router mode is set to DHCP and NAT.

What are the errors that you chose to ignore?

Ethernet unplugged, no valid IP address, and no DNS server

OK - thanks for the update - I think that you should try a factory reset and use the bridge mode as I outlined above - to reset the Extreme, unplug it and push in and hold the reset button - then plug it back in and wait for the light to flash quickly - then release the button and wait for the light to flash to flash slowly - this indicates that the Extreme is in factory default mode - you can then re-configure it to connect via ethernet in bridge mode and create a wireless network - however since you cannot tell me exactly how your internet is supplied, I can't tell you if this will work.

This did not work. Still kicks off the Airbook if I start surfing with my iPad.

Sorry about that - If you can contact the ISP or administrator of the network maybe they can tell you if this can be done in your case - and/or if you can find out exactly how the internet is set up - ie: type of service, type of modem, type of router, etc. then re-word and re-post the question and maybe one of the gurus will answer.
