I’m a wireless n00b.
I’m comfortable setting up a wired network, but, I am completely new to setting up a wireless network. In the Spring I’ll be buying a macbook and an airport extreme base station for my daughter. I’ll be assigning the base station its own static IP address. I know that I need to install the airport extreme software to the macbook prior to setting up the extreme base station.
Here is my question. Once the extreme base station software is installed on my macbook does the macbook need to be physically attached to the base station via cat 5 or can I set-up networking on the extreme base station wirelessly with my macbook?
I know this is a mundane question. Thank you for any and all answers.
