    If you are using the Lion or Mountain Lion operating system on your Mac.....

     

    Open Macintosh HD > Applications > Utilities > AirPort Utility

    Click on the AirPort Exrreme icon, then click Edit

    Click the Network tab at the top of the window

    Change the setting for Router Mode from DHCP and NAT to "Off (Bridge Mode)"

    Click the Update button at the lower right of the window and the AirPort will restart in 30 seconds

     

    Then, power off your complete network, wait a minute, start the modem first and let it run a minute, then start the AirPort next the same way, then start other devices one at a time the same way.

    When using bridge mode on the AE do I also turn my ISP to bridge mode? Or leave it DHCP?

    If you use Bridge Mode on the AirPort, then the device supplied by your ISP should be using DHCP (and NAT).

     

    If your AirPort is set to use DHCP and NAT, then the device provided by your ISP should be configured to operate in Bridge Mode.
