    I've got a network that's kinda haphazard and annoying, where there's a good 5-second gap between typing in an address and it actually starting to load. Would I be able to put my modem's connection directly into my mac pro, and then bring the connection through and to my Airport Extreme?

    Any input would be awesome. Thanks!

    Yes. Just enable "Share my wired connection via airport." It is in system preferences. You may also need to configure some things to make it work the way that you want but that is the way I did it for years before I got a time capsule. Good luck.
