    I need help -- my current internet setup at home is wireless from ATT. I have a modem the is hooked up to a LINKSYS wireless B 2.4 GHz broadband router. The router is old and sometimes doesn't work so I went to the apple store a bought an Airport Extreme 802.11 Wi-Fi. Last night I couldn't get it to work so today I took it to the Apple Store and had the unit checked out. Everything was fine and it was able to connect to the internet. I brought the unit home and went through Airport Utility steps. The green light came on the airport extreme and I had 4 bars in the menu bar. But, my computer would still not connect to the internet. When I hook it back up the the LINKSYS router everything is fine. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks

    Make sure DHCP is on. See if you are using PPPoE and if you are have that enabled in the router. See if other devices are working through the Airport Extreme. Do your basic troubleshooting.
