I have an airport extreme (not the newest one), and I am trying to hardwire a pc to it. The PC does not have a wireless card.

The airport extreme is connected to the internet via cable modem.

When I put the ethernet cable directly from the PC to the cable modem, I can access the internet.

When I put the ethernet cable from the PC into the LAN port of the airport extreme, it does not find the internet connection.

 

I have seen many posts about setting up a wireless network and PC but I want to hardwire it. Does anyone know if this can be done, and what are the steps on the PC that I need to do? Do I need to know anything about which port to put the ethernet cable in to the airport extreme?

 

Thanks in advance for your help.
