    Hey guys I need a walkthrough or something to get this to work.

    Im running Leopard and Windows 7. I have an Airport Extreme hooked to another ariport extreme. One is broadcasting 5ghz and the other 2.4ghz.

    Setting a static IP in Leopard causes me to lose internet in osx. Also how the hell do I forward ports? I have been trying to figure it out for a while now but all I can find is walkthroughs for the old model and software.


    Im trying to play civ4 over direct IP (windows) but I have no idea how to do it. There is no way to add a service under the port mapping section? Also it seems like it wants me to specifically set those forwarded ports to a specific IP address which for me wont work.

    It seems to me that the airports dont do port mapping well at all. Is that correct or am I looking at this wrong?

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    wait, are you extending your wireless network from one airport to the other?

    or are you just running 2 different wireless networks?
