Advanced Networking

Did the simplified setups explained in Set Up a Network not cover everything you needed to get up and running? In this chapter, I spell out the details for connecting a base station to a WAN and for further configuring addressing on your LAN. Advanced options are needed for networks that use static or fixed addresses, and for anything the slightest bit unusual.

Note: If you’re building or re-building a network with more than one base station, read this chapter first to set up the base station that connects directly to your broadband service provider. Then read Connect Multiple Base Stations.

Note: To stream music to an AirPort Express with AirPlay, see AirPort Express Extras.
