Currently Being ModeratedJun 10, 2007 2:41 AM (in response to Daru)The usual job of a device like the AEBSn is to share a single IP address to all your networked computers.
The error means that your AEBS is getting its IP address from a device which is already doing NAT address sharing. It's trying to share a share.
You can chose to ignore this - but you might get problems
You can stop the AEBS trying to share the connection - by putting it into bridged mode.
You can put the MODEM into bridged mode.
This last option is the best choice, but it will mean you need to know your ISP username and password. The then goes into the PPPoE boxes in Airport Utility.Mac Pro + Powerbook G4 + 2x Intel Mac Mini + Apple TV + AEBS(n)7.1, Mac OS X (10.4.9), Running dual-band network.

Anyhow, bridge mode seems to work fine, and my remote wireless is showing up, and everything is working, reporting No Errors. So, thanks for taking the time to reply.
