Wireless set up with Airport Express/PC/Cable modem only
I’m getting an IPad soon, but doing some homework first…..
Questions for anyone in the know….
Since I have a Desktop PC, I must connect a USB Network Adaptor to the USB port (Using Windows 7 64 bit w/a Netgear USB network adaptor), so that I may connect the cable modem to the Airport Express input and hope that I will get this set up correctly.
Question: Should I install first the USB Network Adaptor, and then set up the Airport Express with the cable modem, or should I just connect the Cable Modem Ethernet cable to the Airport Express, connect it to the wall outlet, turn the cable modem on, and then connect the Network USB Adaptor. I know that I have to use the Airport Utility set up at some point, but cannot find on the web anything regarding the correct steps to take.
My guess is that I set up the Network Adaptor first with driver, then the Airport Express/modem with Airport Utility immediately after.
Or am I missing something? :confused:
Many thanks to anyone in the know. I also checked the this Apple forum for an answer, but could not find one at this time
