I'm not able to connect to the internet using my TC and ADSL modem (SpeedTouch516). However, I get the set up to work with my old airport express station and it also worked with my old Time Capsule which suddenly died on me. Bought a new TC, but it simply wont allow me to access the internet. After having tried a number of things, I am led to believe that the problem concerns the ethernet link between the TC and modem. Is there any reason why a new TC should have problems talking with an old ADSL modem?

    How is the modem setup? Are you running it bridged or as full router or do you have a special mode like ipoa?


    If the modem is working as router, bridge the TC in isolation from the network. Just select bridge in the airport utility.



    That is v5 utility .. in v6 it is under network tab. Same option..


    If the modem is bridged then you need to use the pppoe wan setup?


    Did you try that?
