Hey guys, I'm having trouble connecting to the internet using my Airport Extreme Router. Everything is hooked up correctly, and the Airport logo in the upper right corner of the screen displays a full connection, yet when I try to actually pull up a page, it says that I in fact am NOT connected to the internet. This is really frustrating, can anyone help?!?! Any words of advice would be appreciated!

that happens when it reads your airport (meaning that your airport is broadcasting a singal) but that the internet portion of the deal isnt working. I would first start by reseting your dsl/cable modem. if that doesnt work let me know and ill try to think of something else

I notice that my Extreme and Express will occassionally drop my PPPoE on my DSL -- I've still go full "bars" on the icon, but internet stops until the PPPoE reconnects (usually just a couple seconds). I will say I never saw this happen on my old Linksys system.

Are you in OSX or Windows?

If in windows check your firewall. :yinyang:

When you go into your router configuration does it show that you have internet connection? If not try resetting your modem and than renew the external IP on your router.
I have worked with nearly every major brand of consumer routers (except Apple, weird huh?) and this method almost always works unless there is a problem with your modem or the ISP.

Since the internet was obviously down, I couldn't post an updated reply.
The crux of my issue was a power surge. My old cable modem, a Motorola SURFboard, was hit by a power surge in a thunderstorm. Basically, the surge hit my old AirPort Extreme, fried it, and went through the single ethernet cable into the port on the modem; therefore it blew out any functioning connection. In retrospect, this was what was causing my AirPort to display full signal strength, yet be unresponsive to the actual internet. Got a new modem, new AirPort, and everything is up and running!
