    Yes. I did this same thing with my extreme for a week or so until i got internet. you need to set up the router as if you were going to have internet. You password protect your wireless signal as you regularly would, but the airport will report back errors that there is no wan connection. All you simply need to do is check the ignore checkbox in the airport utility. After updating the router the router status light should turn green. This means that you are in business and your router will stop trying to repair itself.

  • Yes, not a problem at all. To get that annoying amber light to disappear, you just need to ignore the warning in the software that comes with the device.
