    Hi,

    Just bought an Airport Extreme Base Station router and I LOVE IT!! But one thing....I live in a apartment. I plug my ethernet cable to the wall and when I open Airport Utility and shows every one else that have an Appple Router, I can see peoples music library in i tunes and stuff.....I don't want that. My old Cisco router didn't do that. Please Help .TY

    How are you connected to the Airport? Wired or Wireless?

    This is certainly unusual, but I could see how it might work if you were wired incorrectly or if everyone was using an open wireless network.

    Is your Airport Extreme in "Bridge Mode"?

    Even then it should not do that unless they are all in bridge mode.

    Does each apartment have their own separate internet service account ? Or are they shared somehow?

    Not sure if its in bridge mode. We all have the same internet provider form the apartment management.

    ----------

    I have Bridge mode OFF

    The WAN port. I guess my building is sharing the Internet connection to a bunch of apartments. Its not like we have Comcast and each apartment have our own Modem.

    Can you tell what IP addresses are being used by your client, the private (LAN) side of your Airport and the public (WAN) side?

    You left out the most important bit. The client's computer's IP.

    If that is a 206.214.145.XXX address your Airport Extreme isn't routing. The clients and Airports are all getting public IP addresses.

    Private IP addresses should be of the form 192.168.XXX.YYY or 10.XXX.YYY.ZZZ.

    You didn't answer the question. Is the IP given to your computer from your Wireless a 206.214.145.XXX address?

    You need to give us a whole lot more info.

    Also if you see Off (Bridge Mode) on the network tab that means that routing is off you are in bridge mode. Not that Bridge Mode is Off. You want that to say "DHCP and NAT".

    Post screenshots of all the configuration tabs.
