This might not be possible but i want to make a static ip address with my airport extreme router.  Right know i have to have my router on bridge mode.  I get my iternet from fairport dsl internet which is dhcp to a statip ip address so i can houst a server withought having to configure my ports evertime my address changes. 


I don't know if it matters but i'm running the newest apple extreme on the newest firmware

    Please clarify whether you want the AirPort Extreme to have its own static IP address




    Whether you want the AirPort Extreme to assign a static IP address to another device on your network.


    If this is your goal, the AirPort Extreme cannot assign any IP addresses at all when it is configured in Bridge Mode. IP addresses are being assigned by another device.....probably the one that you call your modem.

    What i want to do is access my computer when i'm not on a local network.

    Then your Internet Service Provider needs to furnish you with a Static IP address that your modem/router will always use to connect to the Internet.


    This is a interanly differnt question but if i got dsl that connects by phone cable to my fairpoint router to my airport extreme.  Is there a a device where i can plug my phone cable into a box and from there i can connect it to my apple extreme.

    This would be a DSL modem. The phone company would need to tell you if this is possible with your current service. If you do this, the AirPort Extreme cannot be connected to your Fairpoint router at the same time.
