I am having the exact same prblem after moving. I had DSL before and now have cable. My IMac recognizes the AE and shows full bars/signal but will not connect to the internet and neither will my G5. If I connect my G5 directly to the cable modem it works fine. Wish I could help, but I have tried everything the forums had suggested and nothing works!
Shut your computer OFF
Pull the Power Adapter from the back of your ISP's Modem.
Do the same with your Airport Extreme Base.
Now you wait for 5 minutes.
Next IN ORDER.
Plug in your Internet Service Providers Modem and wait until it re-establishes the signal, normally takes about a minute.
Now plug in the Airport Extreme Base and ajin you must wait the minute again to establish the signal.
Now you can restart your computer.
If you haven't changed any settings then you should be good.
Was PPPoE used in your previous connection? Disable that if not needed both on the base station and Mac.
Do a hard (not soft) reset on the base station and start over:
