    Does anyone out there is able to guide me thru the step on setting up a 2Wire all-in-one router with the AirPort Extreme base station ?

    I was reading from somewhere, they were saying like i need to bridge the 2 router together or something :confused:

    How do i do it ?

    Many thanks !

    if you want to keep using your 2wire router for routing then you need to put airport extereme into bridge mode. This will cause it to stop routing and act as a wireless access point. it will use DHCP and other options from 2wire and will just connect wireless devices through itself.

    Exactly! That's what i did and it works well. It's nice having your guests use the 2wire wireless and my own 802.11n products for the airport extreme. I heard that having 2 routers is more secure than using 1 router.
