    Easy imo,
    Put your WAN cable (out of modem) in the WAN port
    Connect power
    Connect using ethernet or using wireless
    Aiport Utility and create your custom settings :D

    There's no call to be rude. We're here to help you, not to chew your metaphorical food for you. The information you're looking for is right in front of you, so I don't see why you would expect us to provide it. If you have any specific questions, we would of course be happy to field them.

    At moment I am using a Linksys WRT54G and my wirelles security is done with WPA and allowing access to my network with MacAddress permissions (3 computers).

    But tonight I am going to install my TC. Could I setup it with the same wireless security? WPA and MacAddress? Or there is another method?

    Thank you.

    But...

    1) How can I know other people are not to able to access me network? Where I setup it?

    2) Could I allow access to my network using MacAddress? Where?
