I'm trying to set up my Time Capsule to create a new wireless network (I couldn't figure out how to extend my existing AT&T u-verse wireless network...called their support and I guess it isn't possible). I had my Time Capsule wireless networking working as its own network before and now I've fouled things up!


Basically my TC runs into on ethernet port in my house, back to my Netgear switch and then to my AT&T 2WIRE router/gateway thing.


When I go to

AIrport Utility > AirPort > Wireless

and then select "Create a wireless network" and fill everything in (allow network to be extended, radio mode 802.11n, channel automatic, security WPA/WPA2) and then to go "Update"


I get the following error:

"The DHCP range you have entered conflicts with the WAN IP address of your Apple Wi-Fi base station"

and it says

DHCP Beginning Address:


and then has the same error for the Ending address

DHCP Ending Address:


Basically this is completely greek to me - I haven't entered a DHCP range, so I don't even know how to begin troubleshooting...and it won't let me update the device until I fix the problems. Ugh!


Thanks for the help!!!
