I just bought an Airport Express so that my flatmate and I can use our laptops at home, but can't get more than one laptop working at a time.
I'm using a MacBook, he has a Toshiba.
We have a Dynalink RTA 1320 modem connected to an Airport Express.  I've tired lots of different options.
Please Help!!  I've only got so much hair to pull out.

Did you ever get this working?

I have a Mac Book, and an airport Express connected to a Motorla cable modem supplied by Telstra Clear, and I still haven't been able
to get the airport express to do it's wireless connectivity thing at all, although surfing works just fine with the Cat 5 cable plugged in to the Mac.

under the Internet menu in the Airport Admin utility, disable the option 'share Internet connection using DHCP and NAT'. This enables bridge mode.

Thanks barf,

When I looked at Airport Admin Utility I found that I had mis-typed one number of my DNS in this location, even though it had been corrected
in the main network configuration.

I'm now cheerfully and wirelessly surfing the web.

Thanks again.
