    First post - please be nice!

    We've just moved house and signed-up to O2 Broadband. They've supplied a Thomson wireless box that plugs into the phone socket. This box, however, doesn't work with my Apple TV or Airport Extreme/Airport Disk.

    I've tried to make my Extreme 'extend the network' but it says the network cannot be extended.

    How can I ditch this O2 wireless box and get back to my Apple-based network (considering the broadband enters my house through a phone socket rather than a Cat-5 ethernet cable that the Extreme can accept)?

    ANY help really appreciated cos I want my AppleTV/Airport disk back as I had in my old house!!

    You can connect your O2 modem directly to the Airport Extreme using Cat5 cable and then set your wireless network from the Airport.
