    Yes, you can use Airport Extreme without a dedicated computer connected to it, however you'll need some type of device to set it up initially such as an iPhone, iPad, Mac, PC, etc. Once the Airport Extreme is setup, then it will work stand alone. There is an Airport Utility App for iphone/ipad and the Airport Utility is included on any Mac and can be downloaded to a PC. You'll need the Airport Utility to setup the Airport Extreme to give it a name, password, etc.
