I bought an AirPort Extreme Wireless router this weekend and hooked it up to my cable modem at home. I used the Airport Utility to set up the base station and create a wireless network. At first, I used DHCP to set up but got a yellow light and a message saying that the internet connection was not working. So I hook my MacBookPro directly to the cable modem ethernet port and got all the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Router and DNS information from my ISP, Cox Cables. After this, I connect the AE to the cable modem ethernet port and used the Airport Utility to set up the base station again. I chose manually set up this time with the IP address I got from ISP. I got it working without any problem and my MacBook Pro was able to detect to the AE. However, I still can't access the internet. The light on the AE itself is solid green, but there is no connectivity to the internet. Any help will be appreciated. I'm using Mac OSX v10.6.6.
