If your talking about the Airport Extreme Base Station (AEBS), you want to connect your cable modem to the port on the back marked WAN/Internet. This is the first ethernet port on the left (going from left to right).

For your PC (and Mac if you want to run wired), they can be plugged into any of the four ports to the right of the port you used for your cable modem.

For wireless you would need to create a wireless network when you configure your AEBS, then, you would simply connect each of your wireless clients to the new network you just created.

The AEBS setup instructions are pretty straightforward on how to create/setup the network.

So, what you are doing is removing the direct connection from your PC to the cable modem and plugging in the AEBS base station to the cable modem. The AEBS then provides connectivity to the machines on your network.
