Can a MacBook Pro set up a AirPort Extreme Base Station?

I now have a LinkSys Router and set the pass phrase with a Dell Workstation. My MacBook Pro uses the WIFI along with others in the net work. I am thinking of replacing the LinkSys Router. Would the AirPort extreme Base Station work either with the Dell or my Laptop?

    Your MacBook Pro will be able to set it up and get it going. Up to 50 Macs or PCs will be able to connect to it for internet, sharing files, connecting to a printer or a hard drive at the same time.

  • Yes, a MacBook Pro can set up the AirPort Extreme. I just did it today when I got my AirPort Extreme. In fact, it actually works better if you do it with a Mac rather than a Windows computer.
