    Ok, I have set up quite a few routers over the last 6 months. They have mainly been linksys or netgear routers. Their main use has been for internet sharing. On these routers it is possible to set a "dummy" MAC address that matches your computer so that the cable companies think your router is infact your computer. Therefore you can set up the router as a DHCP + therefore share amongst multiple computers. My question is: How do you do this with the current Airport extreme base stations?

    Thanks

    It's actually easier than you think. Out of the box AirPort provides support to act as a NAT box and hide everything behind it. If you go into the AirPort admin utility and go to "View All Options" under network you'll find the settings you desire.
