when setting up an airport, you plug the cable modem into the WAN port, right. well i did that and both of my computers wont connect to the net. they only see the base station ip address and they wont reconize the internet, even though they say its connected. when i plug it into the LAN port, the one computer reconizes the internet with a long ip address while the other provides a short base station one. i have that assign ip addresses thing checked and i have tried everything i know to fix it. i am running tiger on both computers and i am stumped. my father is relying on me to fix it so he can use the net on his palm and ibook. the power mac, which is working with the net, is connected through airport.
