hey folks im tryin to get my airport working just perfect..i want to turn it into a bridge in stead of it assigning its own ip to my wireless powerbook (ex I have tried pluggin the signal coming from my Dlink DI-604 4 port Router into the other jack on the airport ( btw B version with out antenna jack) and my airport shows up with the ip of in the system preferences but im not able to route at all.

any ideas of where i need to go with goal is to be able to access my laptop remotely from school when i dont bring it with me ( classes have G5's )

thanks in advance

well after a long day of sittin at my desk i found the anwser..if anyone is intrested or for further information, open the airport admin utility and open the base station's configuration, click the network tab and uncheck the " distribute ip address "
and boom...perhaps a lil settings tweak might be needed but if anyone wants to know i'll update it for if asked
QUOTE Thanks
