    I am trying to setup an airport express betwork for my friend.

    He has a motorola surfboard sp4220 cable modem. I connected it to a linksys 5 port hub via crossover ethernet and then used regular Ethernet from the hub to his viao PC and the apx.

    No Internet to the airport. At one point I did manage to get the pc some, but not the airport!!

    A betwork, eh? Well don't worry about the AirPort 'til you've got the PC up and running. You say you managed to get it connected but imply this wasn't maintained. If you lose the hub, does it start working? :)
