    Ethernet cable from Verizon modem to AirPort Extreme WAN port.

    The AirPort Extreme Base Station then creates a network which can be connected to by all wireless devices and also by non-wireless devices using ethernet cable to LAN ports. Three LAN ports.

    The network is administered by using any AirPort Utility located on any computer connecting to the network and having the minimum System Requirements needed to setup and administer the AEBS network.

    Non-wireless PC (or Mac) can connect to network using ethernet cable to AEBS's LAN port. Wireless MacBook connects wirelessly to the network.

    A non-wireless printer, scanner or FAX can connect using ethernet cable to LAN port. A wireless printer and other wireless devices can connect wirelessly to the network. Anything on the network can communicate to anything else, if computers and devices are setup to allow it.
