I am in Bangkok in a serviced apartment that provides bband to all the units through Ethernet. We have two Mac Notebooks. One ("A") with airport card and ("B") with airport extreme. Both work fine when we are in the U.S. (using Comcast Cable). We only have problems at this apartment
Notebook A connects to D-Link 624 router/internet w/o any problems at all, both using airport and ethernet off the LAN port. Notebook has real problems. I can see the SSID in airport but I can never connect.
When I don't use the D-link router at all, (ethernet straight to the laptop) it is okay but I have to put in manual network settings that they provide me.
When I configure the network settings in Notebook "B" that is trying to connect through the router, should I (1) leave it as "automatic" with dynamic DHCP or (2) manually input the same settings? I can't get all of the combinations right, even when I set "B" EXACTLY the same was as I set up "A" (that works fine!)

Leave the Network Settings as "Automatic."
Are you getting an error message? If so, what is it?
Does Notebook B connect to the internet when you connect its ethernet port to the router? You mentioned connecting the cable modem directly to Notebook B, but I couldn't tell if you tried going through ethernet directly to the router (i.e. no airport).
I would suggest checking to see if there's something going on with the router, like an access control list or WEP encryption. It could be that the router is limiting connections to certain MAC addresses or perhaps there's a WEP password that needs to be entered for you to connect wirelessly.
Good luck and let us know!

Try changing the last digit on machine B to something else. (i.e. if mac A is 192.168.0.2 make mac B 192.168.0.3)
