    Hello ! I bought a new Macbook Pro yesterday . Now , I want badly to connect it to the internet . My router isn't working , so I need a new one . If I buy a Airport Express it will do all the internet and Wi-Fi work without connect it to a router ? It's a router by itself ? :/

    It makes a fine little router. Just connect the WAN port to your modem.

    Gotta have a working modem, how else would you connect to your ISP?

    Yeah , that's a problem , I don't have any modem / router in my house except for a broken one ... Then I must buy a new modem / router I guess ?

    Technically you could connect an ISPs modem directly to your Mac but this is rarely a good idea.

    Some ISPs offer combo modem / WiFi routers but alas you gotta have at least a modem that's compatible with your ISP service.
