    I'm moving to a new house and, at least for a while, will have to switch from cable to DSL internet service. At the moment, I come out of the modem, into the TC, which then hard wires to my Mac and allows me to do backups to the disk, as well as wi-fi through the house.

    How is this going to differ with Frontier DSL? Do I need to change settings, do something differently? My goal is to use the same setup as before, and maybe add an Airport Express as a range extender if the wi-fi won't cover the entire new house.

    Is this going to be easy, or am I going to pull my hair out? A few years ago, I tried and tried to make a friends DSL work with my old linksys router, to no avail. But then again, that router wasn't user friendly by any means.

    Any advice helps, and I'm hoping someone here uses Frontier and will know exactly what needs done. Thanks guys.

    Just get the new modem, set it to Bridge Mode, and enter the PPPoE settings into the AirPort.
