    I've had this problem ever since I got my simultaneous dual band Airport Extreme a few months ago. It will not connect to the internet unless I keep my old Belkin router between it and the cable modem. These things are supposed to be efforless, but I can't get the thing to work right. I start with the default settings, and no matter what I do, it will never connect to the internet unless I connect the WAN port on the APX through the old Belkin router whose WAN port goes directly to the cable modem. Is this a problem with the unit itself, or settings? Anyone else had to deal with this before? This thing was supposed to be my replacement, not another network add on.

    Forgive the obvious question, but have you rebooted your modem?

    That's a must where I live when you switch whatever's plugged into the cable modem. :eek:
