Thanks. I assumed that they did.

    It supplies DHCP and NAT services to connected clients.....IF.....it is configured as the main router on the network.

     

    If the Extreme is configured as a "Bridge", then both DHCP and NAT services are turned "Off" on the AirPort Extreme.

    Hi there,

     

    in my case it is not in Bridged mode but in Access Point mode; it does not extend any already existing wieless network. It does act as a DHCP server for the wireless clients, but I won't provide ip addresses to wired devices. Is this a normal behaviour?

     

    The thing is that I'm having troubles with Apple's Wake on Demand, and I think that the culprit is my AE not registering my wired Mac mini.

     

    I would appreciate your helps. Thanks in advance!
