    Hey there,



    First, we need more information: What are you trying to accomplish? Basic Home Networking or just connecting to your airport via wireless so you can surf? Or is it something else?

    More questions:



    Dial-Up or Cable/DSL?



    In either case, use the Airport Setup Utility in Applications:Utilities:AirPort Setup Assistant



    If you've done that in the networking Pane in System Prefereces, make sure Airpot, not Ethernet is selected.



    HTH...

    Its DSL.



    But the user manual says that it have to be connected to a computer (Not wireless) and it shows how to do it on a Mac, but on mine mac i don´t have DHCP options on built-in ethernet like it is in the manual...



    My mac has wireless connection whit the router now but no internet :-(

    In you network pref pane you should see a 'Show' drop down menu box displaying built in ethernet.

    Under this should be 4 tabs with TCP/IP, PPP, Appletalk and Proxies.

    Under the TCP/IP tab you should have a 'Configure' drop down menu box with 4 options (Manually, DHCP, DHCP + Manual and Bootp).



    Do you see these options?

    If it is greyed out can you authenticate and see these?

    This sounds like a modem port and not an ethernet port.

    Under your network prefs there is a Show - Drop down menu that should have modem and built in ethernet.

    Change it from modem to built in ethernet.

    You should see the DHCP selection now as well.

    If ethernet doesn't show up then click on Network Port configurations under the show menu and enable the ethernet adapter. If you don't use the modem then disable this.
