The D-Link device functions as a "bridge" on your network.
You did not mention whether you had configured the AirPort Extreme in Bridge Mode so that it will obtain the correct network settings from the Verizon router.
The Verizon device is a router, correct?
Can you clarify if the AirPort Extreme was configured in Bridge Mode?
I disconnected the DLink router/switch from the broadband modem (that connects to Verizon). I connected the output of the broadband modem to the appropriate input on the AirPort Extreme. Basically I replaced my Dlink router/switch/access point with the AirPort Extreme.
I did not set it up in bridge mode. I believe the choice was to "create a network".
So it looks like this:
Verizon BB -> modem -> AirPort Extreme -> Ethernet and WiFi
The last part works. I get connectivity with the AirPort Extreme both through an Ethernet connection and through WiFi.
Sorry, I am confused.
In one post, you note that you replaced the D-Link router with the AirPort Extreme. In the next post, you mention that the +D-Link was and is still acting as a router.+
Can you clarify on that?
Is the Verizon device also a router? Does it have multiple ethernet ports on it?
Can you map out the schematic of your network again, please?
I managed to get the AirPort Extreme to communicate with Verizon through the modem by doing a hard reset while it was physically connected and powered on and then doing a simple, initial configuration with the AirPort Utility. I have since made some additional configuration changes and they all seem to work.
