    When a printer (or anything) is setup on your AirPort, will it show ethernet connected (green light)? Or is the green light only for the AirPort itself (internet)?

    Long story, but I'm having a little printer problem. Shouldn't anything plugged into the AirPort show up as an ethernet connection (or firewire)?

    Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    The green light on the front simply means your WAN is active. Data is going in and out as it should be, and is broadcasting to your wireless/wired network. I assume you have your printer connected via the Extreme's USB?
