Airport Express static IP configuration
My DSL provider, who placed at home a modem with 4 ethernet ports, does not have DHCP and gave me the following details: IP, Subnet Mask, Gateway (I’m presuming this is the Router address to be internet in Airport Express), DNS and alternate DNS. I configured it as a Static IP, and initially AirPort Express suggested that I put the router in “Bridge Mode” and pointed me to how I can change it. Now the router indicted green but Internet was still amber. Following all this, when I tried connecting using my MacBook, I get the message that it has a “self-assigned IP and cannot connect to the internet”. I don’t know what to do to make it work.
I configured the same settings for the Ethernet adapter on my MacBook and I’m able to connect to the internet. I don’t know if this is helpful but thought I’d put all the information I have on the forum.
