    We are out in the boonies, and have no broadband availability. We have been using a D-Link Dl-714 which has a modem port, and using that modem port serve dial-up to our LAN. I found out today that the D-Link will not allow webserving through the modem port. Does anybody here know if the Apple Airport Extreme allows webserving through it's built in modem? More than likely I will be using port 8080 to serve.

    Don't take this as a definitive 'yes', but I can serve web pages over my airport network no problems to 2 other machines on the network, that's the size of my home network. I don't have Xtreme, just plain vanilla airport.

    Are you serving these web pages through the built in modem, or locally on your LAN?

    Just on the LAN.

    My apologies, I overlooked that you mentioned the modem. I haven't tried serving to the internet over the modem, but it seems that it's supported as long as you can fix a public IP address with your ISP. The following is from Airport Help...
