Hi,

Is there a way I can share my Vodem internet connection using Apple Airport Express?

Thanks

As I understand it you need a computer between the airport and the vodem to act like a router.

If you have a macbook you can connect your vodem to it, then share the internet connection out of your macbook's ethernet connection. Then connect your airport express to your macbook and tell the airport to create a wireless network.

You can also bypass the airport express altogether and use the macbook's internal airport card as an access point.  google it - it's pretty cool.

Yes, that is rather cool. We sent an internet signal across 1km with an airport express -> macbook -> airport express. It was pretty sweet. AND it only took 10 minutes to set up, most of that getting 1km away from the initial airport Smile
