Airport extreme help

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I'm having a problem with my airport network where the it stops transmitting a wireless signal whenever the PC that it's directly connected to goes into hibernation. Any ideas of any settings I can change on any part of my network set-up?

    Cheap and easy practical solution that will solve the problem without going into too much network-voodoo: get the cheapest 5-port Ehernet switch you can get plus one additional cable. Plug one cable into the AirPort Extreme and one into your PC (and plug both into the switch, of course). Done.

    Not so easy solution: try to find out what else you could do about it... Could be something with the dynamic network addresses that your AirPort Extreme is giving out. Or it could be something with the network card in the PC.
