Step-by-Step Directions to Configure Airport Extreme Router in Computer
Step 1 – Find the ‘Internet’ port on the back of your DSL modem to connect it to the PC through the cable. If your computer already has the connection, skip this step.
Step 2 – Connect one side of the Ethernet cord to the modem’s port labeled as ‘Internet,’ and connect another side of the cable to the port labeled as ‘Internet WAN’ on the back of your Apple router.
Step 3 – Plug the power adapter into the electrical port on your router, and connect the other terminal of the adapter to the electrical strip or the surge protector.
Step 4 – Disconnect the power cord from the DSL or cable modem, and wait for 10 seconds before you plug it back into. It will restart the modem, and let it make a connection to your Apple Extreme router. It will instantly start sending the Wi-Fi network once the connection is established. The default network name is the ‘Airport Extreme.’
Step 5 – Insert the software installation CD that supplied with the router into the disc drive on your PC, and wait for the CD/DVD to be detected by your system. Click the ‘Next’ button, followed by the ‘Install’ option on the screen that displays to install the Airport tool to your PC.
Step 6 – Click the ‘Start’ menu, and then the ‘Programs’ icon, followed by the ‘Airport Utility’ option. This will allow you to set the name for your Wi-Fi network and the password. Click the ‘Save’ button to complete setting up the Airport Extreme router.
